This is a whimsically illustrated counting book, and fun enough. The best part, though, is at the end, when it jumps from 10 frogs to 20 sparrows (one of my 2nd grade students today said, "Hey! You can't jump from ten to twenty!") and then, suddenly, to 100 wasps!

This is better for much younger children, ages 3-6.
A bilingual counting book featuring animals as imagined by one of the best illustrators in children's literature.

This book is missing a pronunciation guide which I believe it would've benefited from. Also strange was the inclusion of 20 and 100 after counting from 1-10.

There's a need for good bilingual material, especially in Spanish, but this title doesn't make my recommendation list.
This is an amusing book for teaching young students to count. It also includes the extra feature of numbers and animal names in French, and of course the easy-to-recognize illustrations of Quentin Blake.
lovely :) it's a tribute to Quentin Blake's wonderful style that even a one-year old can interpret his expressive drawings as the thing they represent.
Turned out to be a little simple for my 2 and 5 year old audience, but the illustrations are beautiful.
I love the illustrations and the simple presentations.
