A Vibrant and Funky Counting Book (5 Stars)

While the suggested age range for this book starts at four I really think this is an excellent one to start younger kids with. At 20-months our tot became interested in counting during a really long car trip. By the time we'd reached our destination she could count from one to ten fairly well and continues to attempt the count whenever we're in the car. She might not grasp the concept of number yet but with the help of books like COUNTING IN THE GARDEN we've been working on adding a visual component to her numbers fascination.

What she and I love most about COUNTING IN THE GARDEN is the fun and unusual selection of thing to count. From onions and butterflies to watermelon and worms the colorful illustrations are neat AND easy to count. I can't tell you how many times we've gone through the book over and over and over so she can see the different foods, flowers, and bugs while trying to count them.

We will definitely be adding AMMO Books to our list of publishers to buy toddler books that are both artistic and educational, two things that are very important to our family when it comes to buying books.
