Description

The numbers 1 to 20 have never been so creatively counted as in Basher: 123, a companion to the critically acclaimed "Basher: ABC Kids." Witty, rhythmic text and Basher's bold, appealing artwork highlight the gallery of unforgettable characters like two cheeky monkeys playing tennis, three messy piggies baking cakes, and five cool caterpillars blowing bubbles who dance across the pages. But there's some learning that comes with all this fun--each double-page spread features a number line from 1 to 20, which combines with the language to give children essential tools to learn how to count quickly and with confidence.

Kirkus Review

"The use of simple shapes, multiple colors, a variety of minimally depicted figures (which a child might see in a kindergarten classroom), big numbers, and ample background space is a winning combination."

School Library Journal"Children will love counting the animals, interpreting their movements, and noticing bits like the holes in the socks of those freaky frogs. They will be able to identify colors and find the different expressions on the speedy snails driving their red racecars."
