What to Read Wednesday: Number Books for Kids

Children’s Books About Numbers

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Helping kids understand the concept of numbers starts at a young age as you play and sing and encounter them in your everyday life. Talking to your child as you go about your daily activities and exposing them to concepts like “two socks make a pair” will prepare them to use numbers in more complex ways later on.

Incorporating number themed books into your read-aloud time is a wonderful way to get young kids thinking in terms of “how many,” and also to recognize written numbers by sight. We are sharing some of our tried-and-true favorites below. Many of these, I have read aloud to all three of my boys so much that I could probably still recite them by heart. Mouse Count and Ten Little Ladybugs are two of our most loved books.

If you have any suggestions to add to our list, we’d love to know your favorite numbers books, so let us know in the comments before you go.

Happy Reading!

    I’m in awe that a review of a book of poems was most popular – and I’m so encouraged by this! Thanks for your continual support and welcome here!

      They are really fun books, Mother of 3. It’s fun to incorporate them into our math lessons.

    There are some great books on here I had forgotten about and a few I never heard of that I will need to check out. Thanks for the list!
