Cute Book Alert :: Halloween Counting Books

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.

The second book deals fully with the Halloween sugar carnage that is Candy 1 to 20
by Laurie Wolf and Pam Abrams.

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?

  1. Cute! You’re supposed to tech the kid to count to 30 before Kindergarten, but Z was not into it. So I made a deal with her. She could have 30 pennies, if she counted them. That kid will do anything for cold, hard cash.

    1. Miss Peach loves her Dagmar, let me tell you! I had that dress in my Etsy to buy cart for about a month and then saw it featured on Freckle’s Lishy shower entry and had to snap it up. The Peach of course loves it within an inch of its life because it’s AWRONGE as she likes to say! hee hee!
