TOMO: Adventures in Counting by Trevor Lai - ADVISABLE

Lai, Trevor TOMO: Adventures in Counting. BOARD BOOK. ImprintReads (Macmillan), 2018. $8. 9781250119896.


One day, two friends go on an adventure and find a variety of creatures in the appropriate number to count up to ten--3 bears, 4 frogs, etc. By the number 10 they have made their way home again. 

This is a pretty basic/classic counting book for the youngest readers. I like the illustrations and the bright colors. There is sporadic rhyming and I'd have preferred it was consistent or not there at all. Imperfect rhyme in children's books is just a pet peeve of mine. The fact that the two characters are a boy and a girl makes it delightfully gender neutral so it works for all kids. Overall this is not a bad choice for counting board books.
