Fifteen Animals! by Sandra Boynton

The amazing Bob! The amazing Boynton! Because who else but Sandra Boynton could imagine 15 Bobs in one book? Actually, that's 14 Bobs, and one Simon James Alexander Ragsdale the Third (he's a turtle), which gives Fifteen Animals! the added dimension of being a unique counting book—count the Bobs, count the pets, count the bunnies, count the fish. Fifteen Animals! also comes with a free song available via download. It's all the energy and appeal of Boynton: the lively language, distinctive illustrations, and inimitable characters. And music. And counting. And, for the first time, a person character, an earnest little boy who loves animals and happily sings:

I really like animals,
I like them a lot.
Fifteen animals is what I’ve got.
I’ve got fifteen animals.
They're friendly and tame, and
I’ve given each one a special name.

Make that Bob.

My kids grew up with 'Doggies' and 'Red Hat, Blue Hat'. When friends have kids, I ALWAYS give them a copy. My college age student took 'Doggies' to school with her and my son loves the hippo books. Read this book and glory in the Bobs! You can't go wrong with Sandra Boyton, she is the next best thing to Chocolate!

Never having read this, i was laughing the whole first time through! Quirky, fun, and a new favorite...and a great way to learn numbers to boot.

"Fifteen Animals" is a short, but sweet picture book by Sandra Boynton. The narration is a little bit flat. It is not your usual counting book, in that they do not actually count the animals from 1-15. The plot is simple. A boy loves animals so much that he has 15 of them. He talks about his names for them all. All of the animals are called Bob, except the turtle who has a very long and silly name. We have read it a few times with our 3 year old daughter, and we laugh every time.

This is another story that my two year old son loves to hear at bedtime. I think it is absolutely hilarious to have fourteen animals named Bob and then one named Simon James Alexander Ragsdale III. They rhyme is really cute but makes it sort of awkward to point out the numbers to the child while reading. Still very fun to read out loud. Great for story time during the day or for bedtime.

With her usual charm Sandra Boynton has created an easy to read, easy to love counting book for pre school and early school age children. The numbers aren't as important as the fun as the pages fly by in their charming way until suddenly you get to the surprise ending! My five year old grandson has it memorized, so he now "reads" it to me at our story reading time!

My husband found this book and suggested it for a Christmas gift for our son. We love the story, and my son loves to point and name all the animals in the story. Great together time...
