Priddy Books recently sent my children and I Play and Learn with Wallace - Everyday Maths. This wipe clean book comes complete with a pen and a learning ruler.
The wipe clean pages are mounted on rings which makes for easy page turning for younger ones, the pages are fairly large with bold print and bright illustrations that are extremely eye catching.
This book is more of an introduction to maths beyond simple number recognition and counting. Covering things that will be used in everyday life such as measuring, fractions, shapes and money. I think this makes it suitable for a wide age range.
Inside everything is clearly laid out and well explained. There are even tips on how to use the ruler provided. This a very useful tool to be introduced to as it is used often throughout school.
There are two sides to the ruler. The first side displays centimetres and the other shows inches and along the centre the letters of the alphabet are displayed in both their small and capital forms. I found this refreshing as most products tend to just have letters written in capitals.
At 56 pages long, there's a great variety of subjects to be discovered. From sums that need to be worked out to answers that require circling, the range of questions keeps the book interesting. It not only provides help on maths but gives them the ability to practice their writing skills at the same time.
Answers are provided at the back so you're able to cross check answers and because each page can be wiped clean, the book can be passed down to subsequent children when they find the need to use it.
Priced at £9.99, this book is aimed at children aged 3+. It is useful yet fun and provides entertainment to kids whilst giving them the chance to learn at the same time. A brilliant learning tool for younger and older children. Perfect for parents to work with their children or just as good if your child would like to sit and work independently.
