My First Scottish Numbers by Kate McLelland


My First Scottish Numbers by Kate McLelland

One castle on a hill, two babies bundled up in a pushchair, three drums for a Highland marching band...Introduce your wee ones to the numbers one to ten -- with a Scottish twist! Count dogs and wellies, teddies and treats, all in a special Scottish style. This bright board book is packed with lively images and simple, clear words. The chunky format and hardwearing pages are perfect for wee hands.


'McLelland's choice of unique Scottish numbers and colorful illustraions captured typical Scottish but sometime unfamiliar items in a fun way... This would be interesting to the pre reading child who may have had other number books to broaden this vocabulary, as well as give a sense of pride to those children of Scottish heritage. -- Diane Neylon, Youth Services Book Review'

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