"This is a book that will bring immense joy to children while stimulating their imagination and creativity. It's the kind of education that could create a transformed society."
—Deepak Chopra, author of On My Way to a Happy Life

"Numbers on the Move capitalizes on children's primary mode of learning—joyous, lively movement—to help them master the real 'basics' of mathematics. Catch the beat with your child or student—and have fun!"
—Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., Educational Psychologist, and author of Different Learners: Identifying, Preventing, and Treating Your Child's Learning Problems

"Teresa Benzwie's Numbers on the Move gives young children the opportunity to connect with the kinesthetic ways that they are already thinking and moving. I will use this with my young students."
—Katrina Toews, Director, The Washington Ballet@THEARC


"Teresa Benzwie has written a seamless, melodic intertwining of dance, movement and mathematic concepts, such as numbers, one-to-one correspondence, and counting backwards and forwards, which will captivate readers and listeners alike. With characters that represent the range of human diversity—from gender, race, and ethnicity to differences in physical abilities—all children will connect and relate to it. Each child will find someone who looks like him or her, leading to the universal appeal for this book"
—Jody L. Eberly, Ed.D., Associate Professor & Coordinator, Early Childhood Education, Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education, The College of New Jersey
