I recently received Adding & Subtracting and Multiplying & Dividing books from the Ladybird I’m Ready for Maths series. The books are bright and colourful and are an A4 size which is ideal for young children. The purpose of the books is for the parent to help support and motivate your child’s learning as they practise adding and subtracting and multiplying and dividing through fun activities.
Each book contains over 80 stickers which any parent will know are loved by children of all ages, and are a perfect way of encouraging children to learn mathematical skills. The pictures in the books are colourful and fun and really appealed to my two young children. There is also a game to play in each book which was fun for the whole family to play. Each book contains 32 pages of activities and answers and it’s perfect to dip in and out of with your child.
Both my son and daughter really enjoyed doing the activities in the books, and as a parent I enjoyed watching them learn. There are ‘Parent Note’ boxes on each activity which explain the benefits of each activity, and at the back of the book there is a Maths Glossary which is useful for parents.
The books are priced at £3.99 each which I feel is an excellent price. I would really recommend them to parents of young children. The best way to learn is by doing fun activities and these books really do encourage young children to develop mathematical skills in a fun and rewarding way.
