Take a look around—at home, on the street, at the railway station, wherever. How many numbers do you see? Quite a lot, right? It may not seem so at first glance, but there are numbers all around us. You can probably read them by now, maybe even count them. But do you know what is behind these numbers? Do you know what they tell us? Numbers aren’t only about maths and counting, how much there is, telling the time, and how much things cost. They do much, much more . . . Come with us as we open a door to a somewhat different world of numbers . . .

Different approach: the author of this book failed a first grade math class. As an adult she decided to write a book that explains math in a clear and comprehensible way.
Teaching aid: an introduction to the world of numbers for the first grade children, turning math into an interesting and attractive subject instead of a scary and boring one. First glance into fractions, divisions, algebra or time telling.
Attractive format: a fully illustrated title that resembles more a picture book rather than a text one. And it also contains activities.
Powerful motivation: shows a real-life usage of numbers in our everyday lives. The readers will find out that numbers and math are used unconsciously without even realizing it. Practice explains math, not the other way around as commonly taught in schools.
