This was a bright and colorful counting book. On each page there are Christmas items for children to count, the items are spelled out in nice black print (Christmas trees, snowmen, penguins, stars, etc.), there is the number printed out in letters and then there is also the number printed out in numerical format. That is what makes this a great book. Although this book only goes to the number ten, I love that it has everything included on each page. Children can see that eight means 8, that six means 6 and that nine means 9, the sooner they can learn these, the better. I love the black simple text that spell out each illustration, this also helps the child understand letter formation, that words are made up of letters and hopefully they will begin to recognize letters and sounds. These words might also become the child’s sight words. The illustrations are bright and simple too. The hungry caterpillar makes his appearance on every page and on the last page like in his famous book; he is no longer a hungry caterpillar. What a great addition to your library. I want to thank YABC for a copy of this novel for I received this book as a part of YABooksCentral.com 12 Days of Christmas. This is my own opinion of this children’s book.
