Need a book that integrates science and math? This book does just that. It is a counting book from one to ten that uses different living things in rain forests. Each page has its highlighted number above the fun facts about each feature of the rain forest the number is representing. This is a very easy read and the pictures are very engaging.

ELL Connection: The photographs in this book are of real creatures in the rain forest. Having such real life visuals have a high potential of capturing the attention of all students, but the lesson on counting would definitely benefit ELLs. Just from the pictures, an entire counting lesson can be implemented with the students actively pointing to and counting different features of the creatures.

Recommended grade level: K-1
