In this unusual counting book, playful poems tell the stories of one elk, two birds, three fish—from one through ten and then many—as they go about their day. For an added bonus, numerals, Roman numerals, and words related to the numbers are included in the page design. Jason Stemple's intimate photographs give us a unique look at some common creatures that enjoy the company of others.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book of poems incorporates different animals with counting. Every number has a different type of animal. The illustrations are photographs which show the number of animals that go along with the poems. I enjoyed reading the poems, but most of all I enjoyed how the pictures corresponded to the poems. This would be a great read aloud book for grades Pre-k through 3rd because it is interesting and funny.
