QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hey there! Is there anyway that you could adjust tier 1 where it's only the #'s 0-12? My children are having a hard time with the bigger numbers and counting on. They love these activities though so I would like to continue to use them but with the smaller numbers.
Thanks so much!

On the preview page, the "I Can" poster says "spy a letter" but then the number 11 is shown in the magnifying glass. I love all of your products and have many of them. I want to get this one as well but just want to make sure that the error was simply in the preview only. Thank you for all your hard work and creativity. My kids have loved everything of yours I've given them. :) -- Nicole Rickard
I found the error earlier and they ate corrected. I just haven't changed the preview yet. Yikes! I need to get on that. Thanks for your question and please contact me anytime.
