Awesome insects decorate these eye-catching number wall cards. One side features an insect built from a number that reflects its numerical feat (e.g., 50 comprises the dragonfly because it catches and eats about 50 mosquitos each day). When the cards are flipped over, the numbers 1-25 are displayed for more counting games and simple arithmetic skills. It's an engaging and entertaining way to look at and learn about bugs and their many numbers.
Creative, imaginative , and engaging play for first-time artists.
An ideal activity book--with bold and bright art from Tanya Roitman--for children who have just learned to hold a crayon or pencil. First scribbles and drawings are important, precursory steps to reading and writing! Kids can complete and color all kinds of faces: boys, girls, tigers, monkeys, even ladybugs. At first, toddlers might only draw a circle for a face, not adding eyes, nose, or mouth. But in time, they will fill in the different features, from eyelashes to teeth; from curly hair to whiskers.
