Learning experts create or approve every experience Many students receive less mathematics instruction than they do literacy instruction. In creating a balanced LeapReader library, the LeapFrog learning team observed a need to create more books and activities that support math learning and foster a love of this subject. Team Umizoomi helps enrich children’s early math knowledge through fun and engaging reading experiences that are steeped in mathematical thinking. Thinking mathematically involves many skills, including measurement, shapes, patterns and number concepts, all of which are present in this book, and all of which are key foundational skills for future math learning.
