One, Two (Begin Smart Series)by Begin Smart Books
Even babies too young to count can recognize the difference between one thing and two things. And that understanding sets the stage for number recognition. Vivid illustrations show one ball and two balls, one duck and two ducks, one spoon and two spoons. By following these illustrations and repeating both numbers, babies will begin to recognize quantities and become comfortable with numerical symbols.

Toddlers need to learn to count to two, or even three, and then later add more numbers. So in this respect, this is a good book to count to two. The book is a board book, but outside edges of the book have foam around them (nice and soft, but more difficult to keep clean in a child care setting). The book is a good size and has mostly soft, rounded edges. I like that the babies' faces are multicultural. There are no words on the pages, just illustrations and numbers. On p. 1, there is a baby holding one red spoon, with the number "1" on the spoon. Then you turn the page, and the same baby is holding 2 spoons. I would have preferred if these two pictures were on the same spread, but it can also be fun to make it a "surprise" to turn the page and find that there are two of something. Aside from spoons, the babies hold plates, a toy duck, and a rattle. The book's last inside page is a page of dots with 1s and 2s in them.
