Learning times tables is fun with this board book. It features over 130 magnetic tiles can be positioned on the pages over and over again to give plenty of practice. The questions and answers are accompanied by fun illustrations - such as animals, shoes, circus balls and flowers - to help support the learning of the tables. The mathematical questions and answers in this magnetic book provide a fun and educational way to help children learn their times tables, from 1 to 10. The book begins with the 1x table, explaining that "one times one" means "one lot of one", and "two times one" means "two lots of one". Questions and exercises are given in simple language and accompanied by lively illustrations to help the learning process. For example, "If six ponies have worn out all their old horseshoes, how many new horseshoes do they need?" The book comes with a tray that can be opened and pulled apart to create a set of over 130 magnets, each showing numbers and basic multiplication equations. The pages contain grey squares to show where the magnets can go, and the magnets can be removed and reused.
When finished, a grown-up can fill in an official certificate to show that the book has been completed successfully and that the child knows all their times tables!
