Island Counting 1 2 3 (Hardcover)
Counting from one to ten is a lot more fun on a balmy beach in this lively read-aloud full of tropical flair.
One little island in the Caribbean Sea.Two parrots squawking in a coconut tree.
Take a trip to the Caribbean, where one little island offers many exotic items to count! Here the three hilltop houses are painted in tropical hues, the five market ladies wear shady hats, the nine limbo dancers sway on a sunny beach, and the ten wildly dressed children celebrate carnival time. With vivid colors and an invitingly naive touch, Frané Lessac leads a laid-back counting lesson in true island style.
