David A Carter wrote a great book using boxes full of bug to help children learn to count. The book counts one through ten giving each page a new excitement from the surprises in order to figuring out how many bugs are on each page.

Best Pop-Up Books Ever!

This book is dang cute, and even better read aloud by the author himself. David Carter was at our Barnes and Noble for story time this morning and I took my kids to listen.
