BB has been 'counting', in his own way, for a while. Even before he could talk he would make the sound of counting. Now he knows numbers, but not the order that they go in. If you ask him to cound he will give you a string of numbers though. He understands the concept of two, but no other numbers - though he is beginning to get it. For example, when he has food like grapes or raisins these days, I always ask him how many he wants. At first he would say two, then he quickly learned that five got him more - and very soon after that he began to use the word lots instead. Smart move BB, but let's try and move your concept of numbers on a bit shall we!
This book ticks all the boxes as far as I am concerned. The text is kept simple, and flows with beautiful rhyme and rhythm, while telling a tale and introducing numbers. The book goes beyond ten, which is quite refreshing, all the way to twenty! The illustrations, also by Charles Fuge, are attractive and full of character. BB loves it too, and I think it has potential to be a favourite for a while.
