Leaping Lizards by Stuart Murphy is an excellent way to teach your child how to count by fives and tens without even leaving Menlo Park. With a cute rhyming pattern that will keep your child interested and ready to learn, this quick read will have your child counting in no time. The visuals and images in the story are extremely useful and will help your child visualize the numbers they are counting. Counting by fives and tens is a necessary skill for counting money, telling time, succeeding in school, and solving math problems in a timely fashion in Menlo Park schools. At the end of the story, there are three activities that you can do with your child that will build upon the concepts introduced in Leaping Lizards. Practicing these concepts will help your child solidify their newly acquire counting knowledge and store it in their memory. Repeated practice using Leaping Lizards is bound to help your child succeed in school. Plus, who doesn’t love lizards?! I recommend this book to all children learning to count in the Palo Alto and Menlo Park area. For more counting help, check out Mathnasium of Palo Alto- Menlo Park.
