Mr Tumble has undoubtedly been one of my children’s favourite television stars. They have both sat glued to his television programmes and love joining in as much as they can. Miss M has started to grow out of him but is keen for her younger brother Mister B to have the same fun with Mr Tumble that she has enjoyed over the years.
Mr Tumble’s Big Book of Counting, a new lift the flap book from Egmont arrived for us to review, and Miss M’s eyes lit up as she showed Mister B through the pages, seeing if he knew his numbers.
The book teaches children to count up to 5 with each number spanning a double page with a flap that opens out to make a triple size page. Each page contains a large number image with traceable finger lines, a little rhyme and bright colourful pictures with items to count relating to the number on the page. The book also makes use of the different Tumble family characters to include, Fisherman Tumble, Grandad Tumble, Aunt Polly and more.
Mister B, who is 3, enjoyed the book and was able to recognise the numbers and enjoyed counting the objects. The flaps proved a hit too as he was intrigued to see what was underneath. This a large hardback book with thick card pages. With it’s bold, bright illustrations it’s perfect for any little Mr Tumble fan out there and a great way to get to grips with numbers!
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received a copy of the book in order to write the review.
