Review quote

For those of us who feel they have a `mental block', or natural aversion to maths, this book will be of enormous help. Grounded in the latest research about how children become effective learners, focusing particularly on mathematics, it is packed full of tried and tested, new and innovative, mathematical ideas, activities and experiences. -- Martine Horvath This is a practical and inspiring publication packed full of ideas for all the key areas within an early years setting to support maths learning and development in young children. A great read for all champions of maths. -- Nursery News
