Kids love to count. Here are two books to give parents a break from counting fingers and toes over and over again:
HOW MANY ANTS? by Larry Dane Brimner, illustrated by Joan Cottle. Picnic any time of year. Spread a beach towel on the floor and make a lap. Follow Cottle's fun inspiring critters across the page and engage your future math star in Brimner's rhythmic text. You won't miss the bugs you didn't invite.
ONE BOY by Laura Vaccaro Seeger won a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor from the American Library Association. Count on bright colors and rhythm to win attention from the youngest library patron, too. What does your scholar in training think?
