Jump, Leap, Count Sheep!

Jump, Leap, Count Sheep!

by Geraldo Valerio

24 pages; ages 2-5

OwlKids, 2017

One, two, three, here they come… Canadian animals.

This counting book has a twist: all the animals live in Canada. So kids are learning about their local wildlife as they learn the numbers.

What I like about this book: It’s fun! The illustrations are stylized and imaginative, and may inspire kids (and adults) to try their hand at drawing local wildlife. Each page presents a number three ways: the numeral (3), the word (three), and the correct number of critters being introduced. But Wait! There’s More! There are other elements on the page to count, such as the prey that mantids are hunting. The animals are also active, so active verbs are featured: hunting, jumping, swimming…

Head over to Archimedes Notebook for more math books and activities.
