Numbers made from candy. Couldn't be simpler. Or tastier. (Well, except for the circus peanut sixteen. Those things aren't my favorites.)

Abrams has take the one thing that gets every kid's attention and used it to introduce tiny ones to the numbers 1-20. For years now we've been using the M&Ms Counting Book to help get kids interested in math concepts. This board book stretches the idea and simplifies it at the same time--now we're using licorice wheels, gummy sharks, Kisses, Dubble Bubble,

They had already shouted out the answer before we counted as the candy is arranged in the shape of the letter. This was actually a lot of fun.

Super cute illustrations of candy in this counting book. Candy makes the shape of the number and is made from the same number of candies as the number on each page. Good for toddler time, R2R.
