Eight Books To Help Your Child Learn How To Count

ParentCircle

Children are naturally curious about the world. They are constantly asking questions and trying to figure things out. This curiousity extends to the world of numbers. Children wonder why spiders have six legs whereas dogs have four. They are awed by the number of stars in the sky and grains of sand at the beach. 

It is important to introduce counting to children at a young age. Teaching preschoolers how to count plays a huge role in determining how well they will perform at mathematics once they join school. 

You can use every day objects to teach your children to count from crayons to spoonfuls of food. Helping them count on their fingers can also be very helpful. However, it can be difficult to hold their attention for too long and they may quickly lose interest. 

Fortunately, there are a range of engaging counting books designed specifically for your little one to help him learn how to count and much much more. Scroll through the following clips to find one that is just right for your child.
