Genre: Number Book
Grade Level: Kindergarten

This book goes through the numbers 1-10, 15, 25, 50, 100. On each page their is a specific animal, and then their are that many animals pictured.

I feel like this book can really only be used for kindergarten. It is great in the essence that it introduces numbers and gives the students a real life connection.

Activity 1: Give the students blocks, and for each number have the students connect that many blocks.

Activity 2: Allow the students to create their

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a fun counting book that has very few words. The rhyming introduction is short and each two-page spread depicts a different number of animal babies. We had fun guessing what each animal is, some are obvious, others are a bit more subtle. After we finished the book, I read the Animal Facts at the end that describes each animal and how many babies each animal typically has. Our youngest brought this book home from her first grade class to practice her reading. We enjoyed reading it togethe ...more

This book is about finding out how many babies in each mother's brood with counting. There is an example of a kangaroo with one baby, a swan with two babies, and so forth. There is also a page at the end with what type of animal it was and a fact about it. I thought this was a great way to learn about counting. I enjoyed the illustrations and how you also learned about animals too. This would be great to use in the classroom to learn about counting and animals.

This book has been a favorite of mine from my childhood. I enjoy this book because it includes animals and numbers, so the reader gets to learn about both topics in one interesting read. The illustrations are so enticing and are accurate to the numbers even all the way up to 100 common frog. Even in the back of the book their are interesting little blurbs about the animal that represents each number all the way up to the number 100.

Count the babies of each animal. There is not a lot to this book--it is essentially wordless, but it provides the names of the animals at the end of the book.
