Beyond Drill to Real Skills
Most parents know that a child who only memorizes math facts without really understanding math will find progressively complex concepts more and more difficult to understand. But what they erroneously think is that such problems arise about the time a child is memorizing the multiplication table. Not so. Unlike reading, an integral skill that is tightly woven throughout our entire day, math tends to be a more sporadic subject, essential when you need it and then easily set aside. That is why it is imperative that a child is able to reason his way through any mathematical problem.
Award-winning Mathematical Reasoning is a great place to start. With 236 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in preschoolers, these highly motivational activities will take your child beyond mere drill work by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving. Concepts spiral gradually so that children do not forget as they go. The concepts are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Non-reproducible.
Table of Contents/Skills include: Addition, Count, Fractions, Language, Manipulative, Match, Order, Pattern, Shape, and Subtraction.Publisher's Information

This book is a great introduction to math. My 3 year old enjoys it and that's what matters. We got through a lot of pages the first day we opened it. I highly recommend this book.
I really loved this book! My son wanted to do the entire book. I wish I’d have gone up a level as this was a bit too easy for him. It has multiple practice levels to help kids who don’t get a concept the first time (for example, little man was NOT getting patterns. Then yesterday he brings me the book with a pattern page on it and completes every pattern perfectly.) Bright colorful illustrations really catch kids interests!
Helps me know my child’s weaknesses and strengths so I can help them work on concepts they don’t quite understand. Love the illustrations and repetitiveness of concepts that this book offers
I wish they had this book when I was a kid. It makes learning math so much fun and it makes sense. I know she will use the skills she has learned from this product for the rest of her life!
It's hard to find a math workbook that teaches the skills a toddler is ready for using the skill set a toddler already has. This one is doable. My child was early with a lot of math skills, and that didn't always match his physical development, so we skipped around doing the activities that he was ready for and waiting on the activities he wasn't ready for. My kid has a strange love of workbooks, so this has been a hit!
