The adventures of an engaging and talented child, Neha, in the Wonderland of Numbers is a fine way to introduce children to the concept of maths as fun activity. The specialities of each individual number, from zero to nine, and the little mathematical tricks as shown by Shakuntala Devi, all combine to make the reader learn to befriend numbers and excel at mathes.Numbers are not symbols to be written on the blackboard, They are the doorway to the world of intellectual adventure.My purpose of narrating his wonderful story is to take away any fear a child may have of numbers. Numbers are fun, numbers are magical. It is my hope that this story will inspire parents and teachers to enthuse children with a life-long love for numbers and maths.
