Everyday, we go through the routine reading of of their favorite books. These are just some of the number books that my boys have grown to love, which in one way or another have taught them the basics of numbers and rote counting. The best are still those, which rhyme, or can sing a tune or two with... and definitely those with tens of kisses to exchange!
One to Ten and Back Again by Nick Sharratt and Sue Heap
The best part of this book is that it counts from One to Ten, and from Ten to one. Hence, it is almost like reading the numbers twice in a row, instilling better memory for the numbers one to ten.
Ten Tiny Tickles by Karen Katz
Karen Katz is a favourite among most mommies, and I am no different. I love this number book by her simply because with each page, you get to do the activity with your own baby, allowing them to relate to it even better. I read this to ahmed every morning when he wakes, and he loves how with every page turned, he gets more tickles!
Spot Can Count! by Eric Hill
My Very First Book of Numbers by Eric Carle
Nutty Numbers by Dr Seuss
