Dot-to-dots and numeracy

Harry got this book for his birthday which he has recently started

Some of the puzzles are quite complex and have numbers up to 50, so I think this will be great for his number recognition and sequencing skills, as well as pen control. I have not yet added any numeracy activities into our life as it seems to come quite naturally to him. He can count to 50 verbally and tell me how many extra we need to make a particular number (of lego bricks, biscuits etc!). He also has a good grasp of height, weight, length and shape and seems to enjoy play based on these areas, so I think his maths skills are developing really well without any intervention from me at the moment!
