Counting Creatures (Hardcover)
Winter 2020 Kids Indie Next List
“What a gorgeous book! I loved Animalphabet, and this goes perfectly on the shelf with it. Did you know that a baby arctic hare is called a leveret? This book taught me that!”
— Tegan Tigani, Queen Anne Book Company, Seattle, WA
A gorgeous lift-the-flap counting book that pairs parent animals with their babies, from the bestselling author of Room on the Broom.
From a bat and its pup, to a frog and its twelve tadpoles, young readers will delight in counting each creature's babies and learning unusual scientific names for young animals. With rhyming text, lift-the-flaps and peekaboo holes, and a surprise search-and-find element, this is a read-aloud delight and preschool must-have.
* "Engaging, rewarding, and utterly delightful."—Kirkus, starred review
