A practical and easy to navigate resource to help provide your baby with the foundations of a bright mathematical future. ‘100 Ways in 100 Days to Teach Your Baby Maths’ by Emma Smith does exactly what it says on the tin. Broken down into 100 Days the author takes us through why a positive early experience and introduction to maths is important as well as a variety of activities that can help to boost a child’s mathematical development even before they can talk. As I learned in this book, babies are born with an innate number sense and the ability to categorise and quantify early on. This, as well as their bonding and connection with the parent, can help to shape their preschool mathematical abilities. Using activities that most definitely don’t feel like maths homework and with tips on how to incorporate number talk into everyday life, this book is very well-structured and offers achievable ways to incorporate maths into a busy family life. ‘100 Ways in 100 Days to Teach Your Baby Maths’ Creates an enjoyable environment for both parent and child. This book not only helps to develop a baby’s maths ability in a way that will help them to progress throughout their education as a whole but also allows for dedicated quality bonding time for parent and child. This really is one to read for new and soon-to-be parents.
