The Peach is aces with the alphabet, but numbers are turning into a bit of a tougher project. She has pretty much nailed 1 through 10, but after ten things start to get a bit dodgy.
Here’s how Miss Peach counts to 20:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, February 26!
Hmm…Well, fortunately Alix hipped me to two great books from Chronicle that are not only awesome for little counters, but perfect for this time of year—Halloween!
One of my favorite writers and illustrators, J.otto Seibold created the divine Count, Dagmar!
Is this not the cutest lil’ vampire you’ve ever seen? I’m totally Team Dagmar!
I love that J.otto has created non spooky Halloweeny things like “six silly monsters” and “seven ghosties”–perfect for my little one who has can sometimes be scared by images in books.
What is really grand is that the authors used that innate prettiness of candies and the proper number of candies to count all the way up to 20. Kinda reminds me of Scandybar for the counting set.
I don’t know about you, but after reading this book, I kinda want to go crazy in a penny candy store!
What are (or were) your favorite counting books in your house?
