The number just for you

Board book, 18 pages, $6.95
By Josephine Bridges
In this simple and vibrant little book, two toddlers, a boy and a girl, count hands, feet, and other basic body parts that come in twos. Young readers will quickly learn to say, "Two hands, one, two." It wonít be much longer before theyíre making up their own verses about knees, wings, and drum sticks.
Toddler Two begins and ends with the lovely little rhyme, "Toddler, toddler, toddler two. Two is the number just for you." Author Anastasia Suen knows that in a counting book for toddlers, less is more and repetition is everything.
Winnie Cheonís lively felt collages show the children using two eyes to play hide and seek and two legs to swing, for example, but also include a number of animals, insects, and objects to count.
This book invites young readers to play with numbers. Children who take pleasure in this activity will also begin to learn that math is nothing to fear. Early readers, Toddler Two is the book just for you.
