Start School with Topsy and Tim: Wipe Clean First Numbers

Summary

Start School with Topsy and Tim: First Numbers is a lovely, easy-to-use activity book for children who are starting to learn how to count. Help your child practise writing numbers with the bright, colourful activities in this wipe-clean book. Each number from zero to ten has a page of fun activities including tracing over the number, drawing, linking a number to a picture and circling the correct number of things. Children can wipe the page clean and practice again and again.
Topsy and Tim are lovely, friendly characters who do all the same things real children do. Learning with Topsy and Tim is fun and reassuring for young children who have just started school or who will be starting soon and want to get a head start.
A free pen is included with the book.
