These fun connect-the-dots help children master their numbers and improve their manual dexterity. Kids won't even realize they're learning as they happily make pictures come into focus with their pencils. Plus, every spread has a "number line" on top to keep youngsters on track when they have trouble figuring out which dot comes next. Easier puzzles for the youngest set go up till ten, and feature favorite animals. There's a penguin, an elephant using his trunk to spray water, and a cute kitten among the delightful menagerie. Slightly older children can try their skills at counting to 50 as they complete more detailed and elaborate illustrations of an adorable koala in a tree, a whimsical monkey in a cart, and many more.
