One Two Baa Moo: A pop-up book of counting review

One, Two, Baa, Moo,” by Jonathan Litton and illustrated by LIsa Verrall (RRP £6.99) from Little Tiger Press, is a very colourful and appealing pop up book to help young children with their counting skills.  Aimed at 3-5 year olds, this was ideal for H.  She is really enjoying exploring numbers at the moment so this book came at the right time for her.

This book helps small children count from one to five, with pop-up animals on each double page. H’s favourite was the horse page as the horse as flying through the air and it made her giggle.

The language in the story was very appealing to the children, with alliteration, repetition and rhyming on each page.  H liked that there was lots of animal sounds mentioned that she could join in with while reading the book.

S really liked the last page as it summarised the other pages by counting from one to five and showing all of the farm animals that we’d met in the story.

S liked the final page and that it was a pop-up book

I think that with this counting book being a pop-up book, it was more appealing to my children. They really enjoyed reading this together.

    Can’t beat a good book that makes children smile.

  • Leah Wheatley

    Looks like a really good book but fun whilst learning as well. Perfect for my youngest, but as only two and a half would have to supervise so she does not rip it up. She is really into counting her fingers at the moment.

  • Muuka Gwaba

    Love the title of the book and I have always liked pop up books. I wish they made pop up books for adults too…

  • This book looks amazing! I am sure Boo would love that when she gets a bit older – adding that to my list! Thanks for sharing!

  • Looks like a fab book! We’re book mad here so may look at adding this one to our collection! X

  • Jade Lewendon

    I love the sound of this book, it sounds much more appealing than the board book my son had when he was younger which just had 1, 2, 3, 4, etc on each page! I also love books that rhyme! This book sounds like it helps children with more than just numbers, and what child doesn’t like animals!? x

  • Zena’s Suitcase

    This looks adorable, something I’d definitely get for my daughter

  • Katia Valadeau

    Great! I’m always looking for decent recommendation for my little nieces and nephews!
