I love this puzzle! It not only has the puzzle aspect to it, but helps the child to be able to count the number of objects(I believe animals in this case?) and then correlate that number to the actual digit it represents. Wonderful and colorful. My 4 yr old loves it! :)
I was having trouble teaching my 2 1/2 year old son to recognize numbers versus letters and to count. Within a day of using this puzzle to teach these skills, things finally clicked for him, and he was able to identify the numbers 0, 1, 2 and 3, plus tell me that zero meant "all gone"!! Now, I know that this puzzle alone didn't teach him all that on its own; but after struggling for months to teach him to recognize numbers, it was such a joy (and relief!) when he was able to do so without my prompting while playing with this puzzle.
