First and foremost, this book is a story and an adventure. An adventure involving a plane, a crocodile, a rocket, a dragon, a Princess, maybe some treasure and possibly even a mole…and some other stuff too. Oh, and there’s absolutely NO KISSING…actually that bit might not be true.
Written by a practising school teacher, Tiny Bob’s Adventurous Counting supports children in developing early maths skills. Animated video clips and interactive activities bring the story to life, and ensure that a child can access the book independently.
Here are some things people have said about this book…
“He’s always made mountains out of mole hills…he’ll never change.” Tiny Bob’s Mum.
“I taught him to count properly…important life skill. Bagged him a Princess in the end, didn’t it!” Tiny Bob’s Dad.
“I just don’t believe it. There’s no way she’s a Princess. She hasn’t even got a crown, and I don’t like her trousers.” Tiny Bob’s sister.
“We used to count stuff every day…cars, teddies, buttons, balls…sometimes even bad smells…he was good at that…counting I mean.” Mr Mole, Tiny Bob’s first teacher.
An interactive book for children aged 3-8.

What a great book. My class love this book and Tiny Bob himself. This book opens up the chance to plan a lot of maths around it. Look forward to future adventures!
My son Theo and I really enjoyed reading about Tiny Bob's adventures. The maths part of it (which is why I bought it!) fits in naturally with the story and Theo really loves the counting games. A brilliant book for anyone who wants to give their child a boost in maths.
A rare gem! Maths books based on a decent story are few and far between. I bought this to use with my class and it has exceeded my expectations. It worked brilliantly on the whiteboard with the whole class (some good jokes!), and the children now use it regularly on their own. The animations and pictures mean they don't need an adult to support them, and they really do learn from the counting activities. Highly recommended!!!
