Synopsis

Swallow the Leader by Danna Smith

Count the fish from one to ten as each joins the game, then count back down to one when the leader snacks on a sea spider and sets off an unfortunate chain reaction (swallow the leader!). Luckily for everyone, fish number ten - the shark - gulps down his prey too quickly, and burrrrrrrp! they all swim out again. Lively rhymed text and energetic artwork combine in this exuberant counting book that's sure to delight little ones learning their numbers.

Reviews

Readers will enjoy listening to the story and counting up and down as fish are added and swallowed. As the shark quips, 'Delish!

--School Library Journal Smith's undersea romp is an enjoyable rhyme that, while introducing different denizens of the briny deep, could easily be adapted to a finger play or body rhyme at storytime... Nothing fishy here: it's a delish addition to storytime collections. --Kirkus Praise for . . . I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean

This title inspires creative play . . . a treasure. --SLJ With staccato sentences that never waste a syllable . . . [a] lively concept-book creation. --KirkusTwo at the Zoo

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