How to Count to ONE: (And Don’t Even THINK About Bigger Numbers!)

Nosy Crow. Jun. 2023. 32p. $16.19. ISBN 9798887770246.
PreS-K–Counting concept books are a dime a dozen, but this one has a twist—readers only have to count to one! While that might sound easy enough, the narrator has tricks up his sleeve. Despite the “nice and easy” warm-up pages with just one apple and one elephant, further spreads include several items, such as dinosaurs, ducks, and whales. Readers learn to look and listen closely as the narrator doesn’t ask to count everything on the page—just one specific item. The interactive experience will keep toddlers, preschoolers, and even kindergartners on their toes and will make for a very fun read-aloud. The very last page gives children the opportunity to stretch their skills and count all the way to 100.
VERDICT An outright delight for picture book collections.
