Zero for Parents and Teachers, or (Almost) All You Need to Know about Mathematics for Young Children

Zero for Parents and Teachers, or (Almost) All You Need to Know about Mathematics for Young Children is a book for people who feel nervous or uncertain about teaching maths to young children. If you are anxious and confused about the subject this might just be the book you are looking for!

It covers all the basic topics young children need to know about maths. It starts at the beginning and, in an open and friendly way, opens new horizons exploring fundamental ideas you may never have known you never knew. Had you realised that, for example, zero (0) means much more than simply nothing, you might have found yourself enjoying maths at school.

The book begins by introducing six young friends who follow us through each chapter, providing a range of fun activities for you and your children to further your mathematical confidence.

Written by early years educators, this book will offer safe and sympathetic guidance for any reader.
