This is a great book which my 6 year old girl loves. Join all the characters in Digitaria....King Multiplus & Queen Addeleine...Count Infinity...(you get the idea) and Zero as he finds his 'place value' amongst all the other digits. Colourful...well designed....and introduces the concept of 'ten', multiplcation and place value really well to support those dry maths lessons in class!

I concur with the previous reviewer's assessment of this book. It is superb. However, it is not just for very young children. I teach maths in a secondary school, and my students love this book too. I keep it in my "Maths Book Box" for early finishers and it is very popular. The illustrations are also excellent.

I bought this book for my Y1 son and pre-Reception daughter to show that maths doesn't just happen in homework, is all around us and - dare I say it - is fun.

The main character, Zero, is on a quest for a purpose after concluding that he doesn't add anything, so can't play with the other numbers. He visits various boffins in the Digitaria kingdom, which use machines to show how Zero has a use - particularly when it comes to showing 10 units. Quite a nice personal development theme too!

The structure of the book is its best point, illustrating well the rules around using zero. The character names are a bit heavy-handed, especially for younger readers who night be tempted to read it to themselves. However, overall the book keeps their attention and is a favourite already. (For older children and those that are comfortable with maths and its terminology - like factors and integers - some of the pictures are subtly labelled, giving readers a bit extra here.)

Just to say too, that as the title suggest, the book is in American English - fine, but just to flag.

So, a success of reasons for buying it! (It would have been a five-star review had it not been for the slightly cumbersome names.)

My 5 1/2 year old daughter is just beginning to learn place value at school. She loved the characters in this book. It introduces the concepts of adding and multiplying by 0, and using 0 as a place marker for 10's and 100's in a very engaging and entertaining story. I would recommend it to all parents of Year 1 children.

I'm a primary school teacher, and I hoped that this book would be really useful. Unfortunately, it isn't at all. The reason is because concept of the book is for children who are much too young to understand the language/vocabulary used. Those developed enough to be able to read and understand the text will already be beyond needing to learn what the book is trying to teach.
