not a dull counting book. features attractive and funny illustrations of cats, as well as great vocabulary and catchy phrases. my daughter loves it!

Excellent for addition. In the book, cats keep showing up and the number of cats keep adding to larger sums.
I know...maybe I shouldn't give a counting book 4 stars, but it was really cute and the rhythm was terrific!
