This very long, narrow puzzle is a wonderful way to help children with numbers and counting skills. Measuring approximately 29cms x 86cms, this tall tree has all sorts of interesting creatures living within its branches. Numbers are clearly printed all the way up the trunk, with a corresponding number of animals next to each one. Children will learn to associate the number of animals with the correct number on the trunk. The bright, cheerful illustration will appeal to children of all ages, and the thick, durable board will hold up to plenty of wear and tear. There are 30 large, chunky pieces, making it perfect for small fingers. An educational guide on the box shows how the puzzle complements your child's education. There are many ways to add to the play value of the puzzle both before it is put together and once it has been completed. Before you start, you can ask your child to find a piece with the number 3 on, or a piece with a red and yellow snake on. When completed, as well as counting the number of animals in each group, you can ask which creatures can fly, which ones have beaks, what noises they make. This award-winning puzzle can help with maths and literacy skills, and comes with a matching poster. It is suitable particularly for children aged from 3 to 6, but even younger children will enjoy looking at the friendly animals.
