A unique first counting book for the very young. What do one hundred creepy crawlers look like? How big is a baby owl? This delightful book is an ideal starting point for parents teaching very young children about numbers. From one through ten, 20, and 100, all small children will be intrigued by these close-up photographs showing animals as big as life. One greedy gorilla, two contented cats, three playful puppies... All are shown in breathtaking color, to turn counting into fun! Note to Parents: The Lifesize Animal Counting Book is an ideal starting point for children who are just beginning to investigate numbers. Parents can devise counting games based on the photographs, and pre-readers can guess at the words by counting the animals on each page. Children will learn numbers form one to ten, 20, and 100 by looking first at numerals, then at words, while the photographs of familiar animals turn learning about numbers into fun!
