Praise For How Many Legs? (Little Books for Little Hands)

Newcomer Spitzer’s screenprint like illustrations practically vibrate with energy in this pocketbook-size counting book. The whimsical details and bright colors command interest.
Publisher’s Weekly

Appealing details such as faces on kites and berries on cakes invite eyes to linger. Whimsical, retro graphics.
Kirkus Reviews

The books in this series are perfect for reading one-on-one with toddlers and preschoolers, or for emergent readers to try on their own.
—Fairview Review

Here's a cute counting book to help your child learn their numbers. […] The book is sturdy enough for smaller hands. It's also a good book to share so they can take turns counting. What a fun way to learn!
—The Book Faerie

These illustrations are absolutely charming. They also used an interesting color pallette of teal, orange, brown, and bright yellow. It is smaller in size for a perfect fit in little hands. It is also a great size for slipping into purses and backpacks. I love it!
—LaLa in the Library

A fun, bright book for children starting to work on their counting skills.
