  1. :

    “I found the ideas in this book very clever! Most of the activities can be easily put together using everyday items at a low cost, which is perfect in a pre-school setting. There is great advice on how to lead the children into conversations about maths, and you don’t need to be a maths expert to use this. All of the ideas have proven popular.”

  2. :

    “This book has been very useful in helping me to make maths fun for my students who are training to work with young children. The activity ideas such as ‘Mathematical Chatterboxes 1’ and ‘Kim’s Game’ went down a treat in our practical lesson! I also found this book very helpful as a mother of a toddler who is currently very interested in learning about numbers. More books like this please!”

    “The book is fantastic – it shows that maths is everywhere but by just using the environment around you, the things that motivate the children and using target vocabulary you can expose children to the language of maths rather than a dull dry numeracy session. The differentiation activities at the end of each page are very useful for practitioners so that they can meet the needs of all the children in their group. I love it and will be buying it for our Speech and Language Therapy department.”

  4. :

    “It is really unusual and refreshing to come across a book which supports practitioners working with very young children, from one to two years of age, as well as those working with older children up to five years. The advice is clearly differentiated with key mathematical vocabulary for each age group written in bold, which makes it so easy to plan from! Let’s Talk About Maths shows how mathematical vocabulary and understanding can be developed through simple activities in a really practical way and would be an asset to any early years setting.”

  5. :

    “Let’s Talk About Maths celebrates a very simple concept: maths is everywhere! With a skilled adult using mathematical vocabulary to accompany some brilliantly simple, fun activities, Michael Jones and Judith Twani really show how a love for maths can take root in the early years. I love this book!”
