The Lovereading4Kids comment

The classic stories of friends Ant and Bee are a perfect introduction to learning to read and, in this title, to count too. When poor Ant is hurt in an unfortunate accident, Bee wraps him in bandages and makes him rest in bed. But Ant is soon very bored! Bee gives Ant 1 ball of wool and 2 knitting needles. After that, Ant is soon busy counting everything around him in his hospital bed.


Ant and Bee Count 123 by Angela Banner

Poor Ant has hurt his head and has to stay in bed until he is better. It's a good thing there are lots of nice things to count whilst he's not feeling well - can you join in the number fun with Ant and Bee?

"All my Ant and Bee books are for shared reading. If a parent or older child reads the black words then young children can join in the storytelling by calling out the words printed in red and all the other colours as they appear in the pictures and text."
