Wow! Bright pages depicting animals in gorgeous jungle illustrations house die-cut numbers from one to five. Each number has a sliding disc enabling little fingers to follow the arrows, move the disc and trace the shape of the number while counting along with the text: one fierce tiger, two stripy zebras etc. Counting books seldom have much in the way of story or text, but here each spread features a four line verse, and introduces new words or concepts: parrots squabble, flamingo’s feathers are ‘bright as jewels’. An unusually eye-catching and effective first book. ~ Andrea Reece
Learn the numbers 1-5 whilst discovering the world of animals and their habitats with this innovative, tactile board book. With unique sliding circular discs on each page, children can count the animals and trace their fingers over the numbers. Clever paper engineering combined with stylish repeating patterns make this a fun interactive reading experience and the perfect first introduction to numbers and animals.
