Barefoot has found a real talent in illustrator Stephanie Bauer. Not only will Counting Cockatoos help toddlers to count, they will also be inspired by some vibrant animal illustrations from cuddly koalas to smiling leopards whilst searching every page for those illusive cockatoos.

Synopsis

Counting Cockatoos by Stella Blackstone

Features tumbling tigers, happy hippos, rumbling rhinos, and more. A companion to author's "Alligator Alphabet", this book includes a colourful counting frieze. It introduces plenty of different animals, and encourages reader interaction with two cockatoos hidden on every page.

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer’s A Child’s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck’s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
