¡Contar siempre es mucho más divertido con la ayuda de Abuelo! De un oso negro a diez jabalíes peludos, el joven narrador y su abuelo cuentan lo que ven mientras atraviesan un colorido y por momentos inusual zoológico, donde se encuentran con una gran variedad de animales amigables en el camino. Hay leones, cebras y pingüinos, por supuesto, pero también camaleones y águilas . . . ¡y hasta tarántulas! Ilustraciones juguetonas y peculiares ponen a relucir la cariñosa relación entre el abuelo juvenil y el nieto, mientras que el texto rimado y animado repleto de verbos con sonidos brillantes invita a que hasta los más pequeños lectores y oyentes participen.

Counting is always more fun when Grandpa helps! From one black bear to ten hairy warthogs, the young narrator and his grandpa count their way through a colorful and sometimes unusual zoo, encountering a wide assortment of friendly animals along the way. There are lions, zebras, and penguins, of course, but also chameleons and eagles . . . and even tarantulas! Playful, quirky illustrations put the loving relationship between the youthful grandfather and the grandson on proud display, while an upbeat, rhymed text full of sparkling verb sounds invites even the youngest readers and listeners to participate.
