4.0 out of 5 stars Great visual book for the numerically inclined 26 Oct 2013
By B. Yeoh
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Our 4.5 year old autistic son LOVES numbers and is very visual, so this is a nice book for him. Each page features a large pop up display of brightly coloured numbers of different shapes and sizes, and some push/pull tabs revealing more numbers. The book is peppered with little maths-style questions to ponder, but they are token. The real value here is the pop ups and interactive elements themselves.

Thames & Hudson are known for their design books and this book has an appealing cover featuring number characters, etc. Strangely, it bears no relation to the style of design inside the book. The design quality inside is lower and less interesting.

Still, it was a hit with my son and the pops up are lovely.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing 22 Oct 2013
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The intended recipient for this book; my granddaughter aged four, has known her colours and numbers since she was two and she loves to learn so this book appeared to be perfect. Although children enjoy repetition there isn't enough to challenge and stimulate her in this book. There are only five pages and each page has the same sort of questions, how many odd numbers are there? How many triangles can you find etc? The 3D pop up idea is a novelty but it means that you can't leave a child unattended with this book because it just isn't durable enough. The last page in particular is magnificent but very fragile. At £12.95 the cost does not justify what you get and your money would be better spent on something more practical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice book but fragile pop ups! 16 Jan 2014
By Pam Dhinsa VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was quite excited by this book on Amazon, but when I received it through the post I was slightly disappointed. It's aimed at preschool children to help them learn their numbers and shapes. The pop up elements are so delicate that they will definitely be torn by young children. The only way to use this book is to sit with your child while they look through it, then put it away on a high shelf. It is a lovely quality book, with good questions and lovely pop up illustrations but far too delicate for little hands!

5.0 out of 5 stars love love 15 Jan 2014
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I got this for my three year old son who can count but now needs to know the numbers better in terms of what they look like and this is a marvel,his progress is swift and he loves this book. I think he knows that gets the chance to show off with this book. He has even taken this book on his own choice into the car and been chirping away in the back seat with it, get this book, seriously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and fun! 8 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great little book for children to get them interested in numbers. Just a few pages in the book but each has fun pop up sets of colourful numbers. There are also fun questions on the pages asking questions about the numbers on the page and the pop ups, plus questions about colours and shapes. Quite expensive for just a few pages, but good as a gift or to have in a school classroom with six / seven year olds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resourse for number loving kids 20 Dec 2013
By A. Moriarty VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I work in a school and got this book from Amazon Vine to enable me to test it on the 6 to 7 year olds I support in class. Without exception, their eyes were as wide as saucers when I opened it up and showed them it's treasures.

It is an extremely colourful, busy book which for some kids could, be distracting, but those in my class loved it. I would get it out as a treat for those who had finished their work first, or as a bribe for those a little slow to finish. As a parant, I would recommend it to anyone with little ones who love figures.

Each page has cunumdrums for children to solve, like 'What's the total of all the red numbers on this page?'. It also has an amazing array of intricately interconnected digits popping up all over the place and there are tabs to pull to make others stand up too, or to reveal more questions.

I would recommend this book to teachers, parents or grandparents. I think it is a truely remarkable feat of engineering and a pleasure to look through!

3.0 out of 5 stars A thing of beauty... but not much else 6 Dec 2013
By Barto VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Now, don't get me wrong: I do appreciate the way this book was put together, what with each page popping right at you with a new pyramid of colourful numbers. But while the first impression is great, the exercises added inside seem to be nothing more than an afterthought - and not a very clever one, either. Do get it if you need a gift for a numbers-crazy kid - but for an average kiddo it will probably not work.

By B. Smyth VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Our little one loves Numtums on BBC and can already count at 21 months so this book seemed ideal for a recent present. The book itself is great and is a real joy to hold and appeals to my 21 month old. Unfortunately, it is a fair old size and would suit a 3 year better than a 2 year old I'd say. That is no fault of the book though. It just isn't obvious from the item description what size it would be.

This is a fun way for the young ones to get involved with numbers and our little one loves the pages as they pop out and says the numbers she sees. As a small present to aid in counting you can't go wrong with this.
