Children's LiteratureChicks are hatching in the kitchen. Pigs are digging in the sandbox. And gorillas are eating at a picnic. These are just some of the wacky animal antics youngsters will discover in this entertaining counting book. A penguin asks, "How many penguins working on hair?" An elephant asks, "How many elephants on the slide?" A shark asks, "How many sharks in the bath?" This continues for eleven fun, full-spread scenes. When the children finishes counting, they are encouraged to find the written answer (the number and number word) on the number bar running down the right side of each action-packed scene. Every page is filled with bright, crisp illustrations and colorful patterns that allow animal characters to pop off the page. Thick, solid-colored borders down the left and right side of each scene separate question and answer bars from the rest of the page. With a brief explanation, even the youngest pre-readers will understand the left to right progression of the activities in this well-crafted counting book. 2005, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, Ages 3 to 6.
