Review:

Counting and working with numerals are the cornerstones of the early math skills taught in this appealing and user-friendly app. Activities help establish the connection between the names and symbols of numbers to the quantities they represent. Players begin by matching numerals to small sets of items that are easy to count. Levels of difficulty increase as the child progresses through the activities.

Eddy, a dog, is having a birthday party and has invited a number of friends. In order to move along the path that brings guests and presents to the party, users must complete tasks of identifying numbers and matching them to the quantities they represent. Three balloons or six? Two decorations on the box, or four? As the number of invites guests increase, so do the challenges of the activities.
