Counting books are a dime a dozen, so to speak, and finding one that captures the attention of both children and their parents is quite the feat.
That’s why I enjoyed An Invitation to the Butterfly Ball by Jane Yolen. Yolen doesn’t just count one through ten, she also tells a story about animals getting ready to attend a ball. Jane Breskin Zalben’s beautiful illustrations bring Yolen’s story to life.
Children will love the counting, the rhymes and the repetition in this book. Parents will enjoy a completely stand-alone counting book – no cartoon tie-ins here!
Highly recommended for ages 2 – 5.
