This engaging wipe-clean book provides lots of practice for children who are starting to learn how to subtract. The lively illustrations and animal characters make every page fun, with maths activities including counting, comparing quantities, taking 1 away and simple sums. The wipe-clean pages allow children to practise again and again. Titles in the increasingly popular Early Years series are perfect for children aged 3 to 5 years. They support the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' framework that is used in nurseries and schools. A fold-out page at the back of the book includes notes and tips for grown-ups, a useful number formation guide and a number line for 'counting back'. This can be left open for children to use as reference next to each page of the book. Durable wipe-clean pages and special pen allow children to complete the activities again and again until they feel confident.
