So after the big success of the Animal ABC I just had to get the other book in the series as well, Animal 123! Yep, we are going counting with animals! And I also have plans to, when they come out on July 20th, to buy all the books (there is another one). These need to be on my shelf!
In this book we are going to be counting! With animals! Normal counting books go up to 10, maybe add 100, but this one goes up to 12! Each number has an animal. We get piranhas, cats, racoons, and more. I definitely liked seeing what animals we would get and also what they would be doing. Yes, this isn’t just a “here are 5 of x animal” no, each number of animals is doing something fun. From swimming and grinning to rolling around in the mud. I had fun counting with this book and I can imagine that kids will absolutely love this cute and fun book!
The art was again very fabulous, this illustrator really got talent. I love that each of the animal was different from the other. For instance with the rabbits we get big rabbits, sleeping rabbits, small rabbits. Not one of them is the same. Often when I see books like this the animals are copy-pasted with maybe just a tiny bit of difference.
This book was fun! I am happy I had the chance to read it! I would highly recommend this book to parents whose kids need to learn numbers (and of course their ABCs). It is cute, it is funny, and it is playful. Learning made fun!
