The Lovereading4Kids comment

Wow! Bright pages depicting animals in gorgeous jungle illustrations house die-cut numbers from one to five. Each number has a sliding disc enabling little fingers to follow the arrows, move the disc and trace the shape of the number while counting along with the text: one fierce tiger, two stripy zebras etc. Counting books seldom have much in the way of story or text, but here each spread features a four line verse, and introduces new words or concepts: parrots squabble, flamingo’s feathers are ‘bright as jewels’. An unusually eye-catching and effective first book. ~ Andrea Reece
