Duration: 1 hour

A unique way of teaching numbers to preschoolers and infants. Rodd Christensen shows viewers how to play with and recognise the numbers 1 to 10. Each number gets to star in its own five-minute show, teaching how to form the numbers and how to use them in the right places. With many playful activities, movement exercises and lots of comedy, each number also has its own special verse in an easy-to-learn number song, so viewers can confidently sing along and count to ten with Rodd.
