Edible Numbers offers a fun way to learn how to count, develop creativity, and expand the learner's mind to unforeseen possibilities. Each page counts progressively upwards. The reader is offered a familiar fruit or vegetable first such as one green pea pod. Then they are then offered two pea pods that are not green, but instead yellow and purple. The book continues in this same pattern, aiding young readers in their counting development as well as their creativity by taking them to unfamiliar ground and expanding their minds.
Parents and preschool teachers will love Edible Numbers. The bold colors and organic nature of this children's board book are beneficial to young minds in so many more ways than just teaching counting. Color recognition and the utilization of fruits and vegetables that are beautiful to look at, and that are healthy for growing and developing minds and bodies, sets this book apart from other counting board books.
