Counting Creatures by Julia Donaldson
From Miss Melia at Main Library
Here at the library, we have a bunch of concept books--that is, books about letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. These books are wonderful for teaching and enforcing early learning skills! And once in a while, we receive a true gem like Counting Creatures written by Julia Donaldson!
Counting Creatures is a well-written and gorgeously illustrated concept book for children of all ages! Full of vibrant colors and lovely details, this title is beautiful from beginning to end. I love the flaps and cut-outs throughout the book! The storyline focuses on baby animals and how many babies each adult animal has, starting with a bat who has one baby all the way to a spider who has LOTS of spiderlings. The technical term for each baby animal is provided, and the short animal facts woven into the story make this more than just a typical counting book while still teaching numbers and counting.
