Let's Count Goats by Mem Fox, illustrated by Jan Thomas
It's time to count goats in this fun and unique counting books. Can you count the little goats, the pilot goats or the rowdy goats? I know you can!
What I Thought:
Wow, this unique counting book is sure to be a hit with the preschool crowd! Which, honestly...anyone could have foreshadowed with Mem Fox's wonderful way with stories designed specifically for this group and Jan Thomas' fun and colorful illustrations.
We are introduced to goats doing human tasks (take notice to how the goats have taken bites out of all sorts of things...beach umbrellas, luggage, airplanes...), and then count from 1 to 10 in the process. It's like they sneak it into the story! Very well done.
I can't wait to read this one at storytime soon!
