Babar's Counting Book by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar continues to be one of the best-loved children's book characters ever created, selling millions of copies worldwide. Beginning in Spring 2012, Abrams will start reissuing Laurent de Brunhoffs classic Babar stories in handsome 3 piece case editions. Parents, grandparents and teachers alike can now introduce Babar and his kingdom to a whole new generation! Learn to count from 1 to 20 with the King of the Elephants! Babar, the adored, best-selling elephant king, is back and he's ready to help young readers master counting from 1 to 20. Ever the good father (and the good teacher), he lets his children, Porn, Flora and Alexander, master 1 to 1 0 on their own. During a walk with Zephir the monkey, they spy one marabou bird, two hot-air balloons in the sky, three race cars...Then Babar personally teaches his children and his young readers to count to 20. At the end of the book, there is a special reward; a Royal certificate that affirms the new skill: I, Babar, King of the Bephants, do herby proclaim that you have learned to count to 20. Babar's Counting book, first published in 1986, continues to delight youngsters and to show them that numbers are all around them.
