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.

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.

It was a very cute story about friendship as well I feel.

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.
