There's plenty of opportunity to practice counting, too (but that's just the beginning!). With eye-catching, bold illustrations by a two-time Caldecott Honor-Book recipient.

"How Many Snails?" is an interactive counting book in which each page has different items to count. Donald Crews' illustrations are fun and interesting to look at. This book would be a great tool for teaching numbers and counting in the classroom.
