This week’s review is for Baby Counting, a PBS publication that introduces your little one to numbers and Curious George.
What I really like about this sturdy board book is that your infant can really be engaged while reading it. On the left side of the book, the number is written out (along with a whimsical story about farm fun); on the right side of the book, the number is shown; and at the top of the book, an abacus is attached.
We’ve been using this book since Oster has been a month old. We trace the numbers with our fingers, point to the actual word for the number, and use the abacus as we count. It’s really a tactile experience. He’s now at a stage where he shouts at the numbers and touches them to mimic our tracing.
