Written by noted early learning specialist Bill Gillham, How Many Sharks in the Bath? reflects the very latest in educational research and takes a fresh approach to teaching numbers from zero to ten. Packed with fun activities and clear, lively and colorful illustrations, this book is the perfect way to help children truly understand quantities rather than just reciting numbers in order and to recognize the spelling of each number. The books includes the number zero, an important and often ignored element in early numeracy and helps to familiarize children with taking numbers out of order and associating the word and numeral to the quantities on the page. Youngsters get to count how many penguins there are in the shower, how many ostriches are in a bed, and much more.
