Author Keith Baker follows his lovely LMNO peas alphabet book with the equally enthralling 1-2-3 peas.
Like most counting books, 1-2-3 peas embarks on counting up to ten. Each page features large, textured numbers which contrast nicely with the tiny peas as they do what the narrator tells them to do, like “look” and “row”.
I also like that Baker not only includes the large numbers, but he also spells each one out. And I also enjoy a simple, yet surprising twist on most counting books.
Baker skips 11 through 19, and jumps to twenty, then counts by tens up to one-hundred. Each two-page spread features the exact number of peas singing, or building, or honking. (You can count them if you’d like!)
Recommended for ages 18 months and up.
