Early Math Books for Babies and Toddlers

I love math, I always have.  Now that I have three little ones, I love how easy and how much fun teaching math is to little kids.  When you have babies or toddlers, math is all about introducing numbers and starting to count.  So much of every day life make great learning moments for the little ones.  Ooh, look at the birdies, should we count them?  1. 2. 3..  If you have little ones, I bet you have done this already.

Now, being the crazy book lady that I am, I want books in the hands of my kids from day one.  I remember when Maggie was born.  I couldn’t wait to rock her and read her her first story.  I felt oddly sad that she just didn’t care, you know, because she was a newborn and didn’t know what a book was, haha.  I also remember getting so excited when she first wanted to read.  Her first book that she loved was an Usborne Books word book.  Pictures of bedtime things and then we look for certain objects.  We read that book about a bazillion times!Books make learning fun and these early math books for babies and toddlers do just that. Encourage a love for reading and math from the very early years.

Since I am an Usborne Books & More consultant, I’ve had some fun discovering even more books that I love and can’t wait to share with friends, family and my readers.  Here are some Usborne math books that are great for introducing numbers to babies and toddlers.  *Because I am a consultant, I earn a commission on all sales through my links.  By ordering through these links, you help support our family and we thank you greatly for that.*
