Book of the Month - Lift-the-flap Adding and Subtracting

1st March 2018

From number lines, to number bonds, to number monsters, this fab lift-the-flap book is an engaging way to help children to get to grips with the basics of adding and subtracting.

Divided into eight sections, Lift-the-flap Adding and Subtracting starts from the basics of adding and subtracting small numbers, to tips and tricks to make sums easier, such as using a number line, and learning your number bonds. With vibrant illustrations, and flaps to lift to find out the answers, this is a great book to encourage children to have fun with numbers.

Each page has a different theme, ideal for helping to maintain children's concentration. From pirates, to dinosaurs, to knights and castles, each theme is cleverly created to put mathematical problems into context. 

The book ends with a fantastic board game that can be played alone or with friends. Monster themed, it gets children involved in a race across the board to get to the finish line first, by solving a range of maths problems along the track - perfect for putting into practice all the skills children have learned along the way.

This book is ideal for helping children to gain confidence in a subject that is often seen as more difficult than others. Its friendly approach breaks down common maths problems into manageable chunks, and the range of hints and tips throughout the book simplify the working out of more complex problems. The book also has internet Quicklinks to a range of carefully chosen websites with activities and videos about adding and subtracting, perfect for extending children's learning further.
