It All Adds Up

I love counting books. I love how predictable they are and how much fun small children have counting with the pictures, over and over again. It had never accured to me that there might be counting books for older kids. There are tons of fraction books, like Jon Scieszka's Math Curse meant to teach and entertain older children. But here are two funny counting (or maybe more like Adding) books for that middle age.

One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab
By April Pullay Sayre and Jeff Sayre
Illustrated by Randy Cecil

This book, as noted on the cover, is a "counting by feet" book.

Quack and Count
by Keith Baker

How many ways can you count to 7?

Do you have a favorite counting book? Please share it with me.

I love Quack and Count too. We have one called Math Fables by Greg Tang. It's really cute. I little long, but cute.
