Created especially with the Montessori methods in mind this new, beautifully packaged, game from White star will stimulate young minds and provide hours of fun. Developed using progressive complexity, 'My First Box of Numbers' helps children to acquire basic numeracy skills. Each primary card features an animal which has been turned into the shape of a specific number; this is then complemented by a second card featuring the corresponding quantity of animals. For example; eight snowmen feature on the card depicting number eight. Using this great game, children learn to recognise numbers and identify what they mean through, fun, interactive play.
