Recommends it for: Two year olds learning how to count
Shelves: kids-books
I LOVE this book and my toddler loves it too. He is learning to count so this is perfect -- the cockatoos are hidden in each page but there are always two to find, in addition to cute paintings of tigers, hippos, etc. Very nicely illustrated!

From the same author as "Octopus Opposites" - Counting Cockatoos doesn't quite measure up to it. But the illustrations use the same bold, water colors and my 1-2 year old has funning "counting" / finding the cocatoos on each page.
Introduces the numbers one through twelve by counting different types of animals, with two cockatoos concealed on each page for the reader to find.
Beautiful illustrations and it could be good for preschoolers to find the cockatoos, for the younger ones you could just do the animals counting. In the back there are some additional counting challenges
My daughter likes looking for the hidden cockatoos and I like the colorful illustrations.
A beautiful early counting book.

The matching floor puzzle has very large sturdy pieces. It is a great complement to the book.
Both items are available at:

Beautifully illustrated, this book introduces littles to exotic animals and helps them to learn tc count as well. I love the little cockatoos on each page.
My kids laughed at the 'and two cockatoos' parts.
