It’s a safe bet that you and everyone you call your friends has met someone like Nancy. Bossy and not a little self-righteous, this self-confessed know-all and the rest of the Little Monsters are on a trip to the museum, where Nancy climbs into a time machine and travels back in time to the land of the dinosaurs. How will she get back to the future, and will she survive in this hostile environment? It’s up to you to help Nancy explore this strange world and try to find her way back home.
Before she can return to the present, there are puzzles to solve, such as recognising and recreating visual and audible patterns, re-building dinosaur skeletons and copying their cries. Solving practical problems with counting, comparing, estimation and prediction also plays a large part in bringing Nancy back to the present.
Comprehensive numeracy is the aim of this title, and it delivers everything you could wish for, as far as lessons from mum and dad are concerned. Targeted at 4-5 year-olds, it’s the ideal starting point for those just about to enter school for the first time.
