The thing about the Hueys was that they loved numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3…

Wait! 0? Is ‘none’ a number?

Join the Hueys for a counting conundrum!

Teaching Ideas and Resources:


  • This story is a ‘counting adventure’. Could you write your own counting adventure story?
  • Can you think of any other stories that include counting / numbers (e.g. the Very Hungry Caterpillar)?
  • Read the other ‘Hueys’ stories. Could you write a new story about them?
  • How many synonyms can you find for the word ‘zero’?
  • Could you rewrite the story using different items for the Hueys to count?
  • Could you write a definition of the word ‘none’? Does it have different meanings?


  • Can you think of some Maths calculations that include zero?
  • How many calculations can you create that have zero as the answer?
  • The Hueys describe none as ‘one less than one’. Can you think of other ways of describing it?
  • Can you find out about numbers that are less than zero? Could you make up some calculations / word problems that include negative numbers?


  • At the back of the book, there is a description of ancient civilisations that used the number zero. Can you find out more about these?
