‘I Know Numbers!,’ by Taro Gomi.

Numbers are everywhere. They’re all around us and are often a source of fascination for young children. From their birthdays to house numbers, children soon learn that numbers are important.


This beautiful picture book is by best-selling author and illustrator, Taro Gomi, who currently lives in Tokyo, Japan. It shows just where numbers can be found and how we use them: calendars, clocks, road signs, TVs, temperature, transport. They’re EVERYWHERE! What would we do without them?


Plenty of opportunities for discussion and number spotting lay within, making this book an excellent first introduction to the world of numbers. The gloriously colourful illustrations should tempt even the most reluctant of readers.
