I think this is an ok book. I wasn't overly thrilled with any of it...the girl is lonely...people come over...she counts them as they come over...

Even though the text is spare enough to use in a library story time the story performer simply prompted the children attending to name each animal as it came through the door.
Begin with a HEDGEHOG (they can roll their hands),
add a BUNNY (hold up two fingers as ears and "hop" them up and down a few times),
an ELEPHANT (make a trunk with an arm and lift it up and down),
a DUCK (open and shut fingers while saying "quack, quack, quack",
a TEDDY BEAR (stop and recite as much as you want of "Teddy B
This book was also a very sweet and good book with opportunities to practice counting, like the book about the caterpillar. I would recommend this book to use as a counting guide. I also enjoyed reading it because it rhymed which made it sound musical. I felt so sorry for the cute little hedgehog that was sitting there by him selves in the beginning of the book, but then his friends came and made it all better. It was a very cute story about friendship as well I feel.

A very cute counting picture book that also features a variety of animals. I particularly liked the last page that shows each friend going out the door. This way the kids can count along with the text as they come in, and finish up by counting them as they leave! A handy tool for kids just learning to count.

This is a great book to introduce counting and numbers to pre-k or kindergarten students. It allows for young minds to understand that numbers come in an order and that there is only a one-to-one correspondence when they pair a number with a quantity. I would use this book to get my students to practice counting and then also talk about the beginning, the middle, and the end of the story.
