Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This fun book is part of the "Know Your Numbers" series. It teaches young children how to count to five by using the dots on the backs of ladybugs. It also teaches kids to count by fives. Kids will be attracted to the colorful, engaging pictures, but parents and teachers will value the educational aspects of this book. Not only does it teach counting skills, it lays the foundation for multiplication. Each page contains dominoes that reinforce the skills being taught. This book also contains science information since it provides details about ladybugs. But this is not all—it can even be used to teach children about similes and alliteration. Whether you are a teacher or parent, this is a great counting book to share with a young child. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 3 to 7.
