    improving literacy and numeracy learning for young children through looking at your own practice (self-appraisal). There are three sections in this book. The first section provides background information on literacy and numeracy concepts. The second and third sections provide different ways of thinking about literacy and numeracy learning. Low performance in early numeracy skills is a risk factor for later mathematical learning difficulties (Jordan et al., ; Morgan, Farkas, & Wu, ) and can be observed during children's average classroom activities.

How early learning affects later learning. Children enter school with a wide range of early numeracy skills but they vary greatly in how they acquire, and how quickly they acquire, different concepts (Klibanoff, Levine, Huttenlocher, Vasilyeva, & Hedges, ; Kroesbergen, Van Luit, Van Lieshout, Van Loosbroek, & Van de Rijt, ).

Numeracy Skills Count. Improved numeracy skills lead to better paid jobs, greater well-being and a less stressful life.

Numeracy skills are not just for scientists, accountants and the tax man, many professions require at least a basic level of understanding when it comes to numeracy and mathematics.
