At Our House by Isabel Minhos Martins

Counting is fun, but it's a lot more fun when you can count things like fingers, and tongues, and freckles! At Our House is a charming adventure through the eyes of one household and the bodies that are in it. Vibrantly illustrated, each page counts up the number of toes, length of intestines, and every tooth you might find in your family, in a hilarious (and gross!) story which children will love.
