1 to 20, Animals Aplenty

This adorably illustrated new addition to our counting books will be a hit with kids of all ages. In 1 to 20, Animals Aplenty by Katie Viggers, each number is represented by a group of animals either doing or wearing something silly that rhymes with the animal name, like “5 goats wearing coats” or “16 chickens reading Dickens.” In addition to the number recognition, counting, and rhyming practice that the book provides, there is a ton of great information about the animals. On several pages, next to the pictures of the animals, are the names of those particular species of animal. For instance, the shark page shows gray reef, hammerhead, blue, and great white sharks. The same is done on pages featuring goats, baboons, pigs, bears, cats, kangaroos, dogs, badgers, and birds. By the time you’re done with this one, your kids will be animal experts, as well as little counting and rhyming machines! J
