Is it a new counting book or a new storybook about family and life on the farm? Answer - both!
Educator and math whisperer Valerie D. Johnson has created an engaging book that prompts children to think, and as you would expect from the title, to count.
What’s special about this book is the way we follow the children on Granddad’s farm and enjoy the story, beyond the numbers. The gentle illustrations are an invitation to enter the farm and count with the author.
As a bonus the author has included information about the actual farm and farmer this story was based on, along with discussion starters for young thinkers.
I must admit sometimes I think the last thing we need is another counting book, but this one is a little gem.
