How Many Legs? by Kes Gray
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Award-winning team Kes Gray and Jim Field do a lot of counting is this entertaining and rhyming picture book. Things start off being quite easy – there’s just one boy with two legs. And then a polar bear arrives who adds a few more legs. But what about when a squid arrives on a buffalo? Or when an octopus riding a pig turns up? Or if a centipede came wriggling by? It is fun counting all the legs but when that gets too complicated it is also fun just to enjoy all the animals having fun! ~ Julia Eccleshare
