If you are looking for a gentle, engaging way to introduce math concepts to your preschooler, look no further than the title from Busy Little Hands called "Math Play!" From the adorable animal characters on the cover to the wildly colorful pages within, your child cannot help but be enthralled. I love the idea that parents can set the stage for becoming aware of the math this is literally all around us.
At the very beginning, the authors speak into a child's life, offering fun ideas that involve math. And parents and teachers are provided a reference at the back explaining how each of the activities in the book helps reinforce concepts related to measurement, geometry, numbers, and patterns.
Using common objects found within the home, parents and children can explore the wonders of math. Children won't even realize learning is happening. I highly recommend this book for parents or grandparents who have a preschooler in their life. What a magnificent way to engage a child in active play and learning without relying on a screen!
