Comments for Numbers

NumbersNumbers: 10/19/06

Recently Sean borrowed Numbers from school. It is designed for up to 18 months old and only teaches the numbers 1 through 5. Sean can count up to 100 by now and probably higher if he sets his mind to it. With Ian working towards a PhD in math, numbers have been a very important topic in our family Sean's entire life.

I think he picked this book more for the pictures and for the reading than for the numbers. Ian has been teaching Sean how to read and he started with the small numbers (one, two, three, etc.). Sean has also been reading these DK Baby Genius books to Harriet. She seems to enjoy his attention and will often fall asleep after he's read her a story or sung her a song from preschool. Being able to read a book to his baby sister is a big ego boost. It's also a huge help to me for a few moments of Harriet free time.
