From one spotty giraffe to ten swimming fish the animals in this book are beautifully illustrated while the number pops up making it easy to see. The seven screeching toucans and eight furry pandas are particularly delightful. ~ Julia Eccleshare


Animal Counting by Petr Horacek

Includes fun illustrations with simple pop-up pages that count from one spotty giraffe to ten swimming fish. Interactive pops encourage first numeracy in the youngest of children.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

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

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