Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Dorling Kindersley has produced an excellent series of interactive parent-assisted learning packages designed for young children, of which My First Number is one. The CD-ROM is aimed at children aged 3-5 years and is especially useful for pre-school children or those needing more practice in early learning number skills.

The package has been specifically designed to give youngsters an introduction to counting and sorting, and to help them gain confidence in using a computer. The games have been developed to allow children to play them on their own, but help may be needed initially, until youngsters get used the format. Make the sessions happy and relaxed, helping your child to learn with lots of fun. When playing alone, the fun will continue as they make decisions for themselves, and so their learning carries on without them even knowing. Game speeds and levels of difficulty can be altered, progress can be tracked and measured and help is automatically adjusted according to a child's responses.

There are five easy games to play and they have been designed to be played in order. Meet Little Penguin and White Bear, appealing and humorous characters who use lots of songs, rhymes and animations to give practice in counting, number recognition, colour, and recognition of 2-D shapes, ordering numbers to create correct counting sequences, and practice in developing problem-solving skills.

The CD-ROM is easy to install (instructions are on the disc, and there are comprehensive support notes for parents with full explanations about the games and activities that are accessed from the parent icon on the tool bar). This is a valuable introduction to key mathematical concepts capitalising on the natural eagerness young children have to learn. --Susan Naylor

Manufacturer's Description

Part of the best selling My First series, this disc provides a valuable introduction to the key concepts of counting and sorting.

3.0 out of 5 stars my first number 26 Sept. 2001
By A Smith
Whilst my 3 year old enjoys playing these games, I was disappointed in the lack of reference to numbers. There is a puzzle sorting game where the pieces must be put in number order. The numbers are never spoken by the software, so it is purely a picture puzzle to my daughter. This does not help her to associate the written number to the words that she knows. I have not heard numbers spoken at any point in any game which seems a serious omission compared to other pre school software.

5.0 out of 5 stars my first cd-rom number 23 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
A very good first number cd rom. I will be recommending this cd to my work place. I tried my first toddler school and my daughter was losing interest as she could complete it. Then i saw this cd rom and as she enjoys working with numbers i though i would try it. She cant get enough. Every time i turn the computer on she is there and wants to play the cd. There is four games to complete before you can play the supergame. She really wanted to play the supergame so she knew she had to complete the other four games. the first game and second game are very good matching games. Im not so sure about the third game as it is a bit confusing for a three year old especially as sometimes you start from number two instead of one. Then the forth game is about patterns which is ideal for a slightly older child. over all a very good cd.
