I read novels.
I read essays.
I read short stories.
I read in bed.
I read on the couch.
I read on the floor.
But no matter whether it's novels, essays, short stories, bed, couch, floor--I'm reading to become myself.

- Kate DiCamillo, former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature

123 Think... Feel and Learn!: Trace the Numbers Amazon link :- https://amzn.to/3JMDq8K Kickstarter :- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1086354348/1-2-3-thinkfeel-and-learn YouTube :- https://youtu.be/2FVyP03ctsY Description:- erfect for parents, early years’ teachers, and kindergarten assistants, this charming book is a great way to introduce small children to the principles of writing numbers even as they come to understand that learning can be fun. Make a game of shaping the numbers and not only are you improving the child’s literacy, but you are setting up a lifelong love of learning that will carry them far in life. It cannot be understated that teaching children to love learning is perhaps the most important gift that those children can be given: with the love of learning they really can be whoever they want to be. The simple but cheerful illustrations show the child where the pen should be placed to begin shaping the number, while the catchy rhymes stick in the brain, aiding retention for long enough for the numbers to be learned. The green dot marks the first placement of the pen, and the red spot shows where each line should end, giving clear and easy-to-follow guidance for all. #123Think #TracetheNumbers #childrensbooks #kidsbooks #bookstagram #books #reading #booksforkids #children #raisingreaders #childrensbookstagram #childrensbook #kids #book #bhfyp
