Slide and see taking away

Introduce young children to the concept of taking away with this delightful interactive book. Children can count the animals in each scene, then move the slider so one disappears and see how many animals there are now. Each scene shows up to five animals, from buzzing bees to splashing frogs and a cat creeping out in the night.

Hannah Watson

Hannah Watson has wonderful memories of staying above her grandma’s bookshop as a child, sneaking down after closing time to look through the children’s books.

This love of books translated into studying English and French literature at Durham University and The Sorbonne in Paris.
She joined Usborne Publishing after graduating in 2015, and cherishes the thought that some of her books can now be found by curious children on bookshop shelves.

Press Reviews

Excellent and interactive way to introduce counting and subtraction to younger children. 3 year old nephew loved the slots, as did 4 year old niece. The rhyming words helped with counting sequence. Bright illustrations. Entertaining.
