“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.
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.
