Why I recommend this book?

Because the mindset is crucial when it comes to learning and this booklet beautifully supplements Numberland.

Adults have a huge impact on their children’s mindset, and especially with maths it is often negative. Admit it .-) Not being good at maths is much more accepted than being clumsy at sports.

Am I open to learn? Is it okay not to always shine brightly, but also okay to be slower and make mistakes? Can I see the maths around me?

This booklet beautifully encourages a positive mindset – and then this mindset is nurtured because children acquire the understanding and knowledge of mathematics with Let’s visit Numberland.
