Farm 123 by Rod Campbell

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lift-the Flap pictures help with counting from 1 to 10 in this busy farm yard counting book. There’s one cat and, under the flap, two mice. And there are four woolly sheep in the field but five if you see the one trying to escape through the gate. Expressive animals playing boldly make these pages fun and the counting of the animals is easy!


Farm 123 by Rod Campbell

Rod Campbell's classic alphabet and numbers board books FARM 123 and ABC ZOO can now be enjoyed in large paperback editions.

In FARM 123 you can make all sorts of animal friends -- just count from one farm cat all the way up to ten naughty rabbits! With bright, bold illustrations and a simple, engaging text, plus a flap to lift on every page, learning about counting and numbers has never been so much fun. The perfect first numbers book.
