At once fun to read and educational, 1 to 20, Animals Aplenty shows each number both numerically and as a quantity, which is the key to teaching children not only to count but also the building blocks of mathematical skills.
The new book from Katie Viggers, author of Almost an Animal Alphabet, teaches kids to count from 1 to 20 as they meet a menagerie of amusing creatures.
Each number is depicted in animals, so kids learn the number and also instantly see how many. All this education is disguised by Katie's adorable, detailed creatures, who romp through the numbers with unexpected and frequently silly props—and it all rhymes! For example...
"5 goats wearing coats"
"7 pigs, 7 wigs"
"15 bats who are acrobats"
"Viggers follows 2013’s Almost an Animal Alphabet with this counting-themed companion book, which has the same understated wit and careful portraiture of its predecessor."
- Publishers Weekly
"From pigs wearing wigs to chickens reading Dickens, Viggers peppers each page with enough whimsical detail and dry wit to make counting to twenty feel like spending an afternoon sipping chai tea with Wes Anderson."
