Animal Numbers by Thomas Flintham - OPTIONAL

Flintham, Thomas Animal Numbers BOARD BOOK.  Simon and Schuster 2016.  $7.99.  Content:  G.

Playfulness abounds in this 1-10 counting book, and each page illustrates the number using a one-to-one correspondence of pictured animals.   The text format is rhyming couplet in which the number words and rhyming words are emphasized with a larger font. 

I don’t see that this is a stand out for this type of book.  The illustrations are bold but look computer-generated, and the author’s choice of animals and words is unremarkable.  

PRE-K – OPTIONAL. Reviewer: JA, High School Librarian
