If you are considering this book, you already know how important it is for your child to get a good start in learning math. This book will assist you in teaching your child fundamental number concepts at an early age. Given the importance of early learning, Marshmallow Math begins with number concepts that young children can master before they learn to read and write numbers. The book follows a natural progression of skills that begins with simple counting. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and other mathematical concepts are introduced gradually with each new skill building upon mastered skills. The book also explores other important concepts including sorting and comparing, telling time, spatial awareness, pattern recognition, geometry, measurement, and reasoning. Marshmallow Math provides many quick, simple, and fun activities for you and your child to do together. Hands on learning and mental math are emphasized over written work and traditional exercises. Many of the activities involve the use of counting objects such as marshmallows, pennies, or jellybeans. Having physical objects to look at, pickup, and count helps to make abstract concepts more real for your child. The unique approach set out in Marshmallow Math will help to ensure that your child truly comprehends fundamental number concepts and masters basic math skills. This will give your child both the ability and the confidence to excel in math.

Maintain the Marshmallow Principle-with this follow-up to the international bestseller! Everyone's favorite stumbling striver returns in another simple and telling parable from acclaimed motivational expert Joachim de Posada. Arthur has been practicing the principles of success, but after he accepts a lucrative new job, he finds himself reverting to his old gobbling habits. Perfect for anyone in transition, this book explains how to apply the principles of success to changing circumstances. In our go-go culture, "wait" has become the most offensive of four-letter words, but patience is not the same as self-sacrifice, and holding out for something you really want is far more satisfying than settling for whatever is available. Don't Gobble the Marshmallow...Ever! teaches the importance of lifelong non-nibbling-and promises sweet rewards.
