Here's a counting book with lots of eye appeal. Dressed in red striped sweaters, a dozen crows are flying around from tree to tree looking for treats. They are having a wonderful time until suddenly a little kitten with a red scarf appears and finds the birds 'objects of interest'. Now it's time for the crows to find a new place to look for goodies to munch.

Young readers will have fun counting the crows as they hang out in trees, gobble up bugs, search for peanuts, and sit on telephone wires in this picture book. The red sweaters really make the crows stand out, while the kitty adds a bit of drama to the cute story.

Not your typical counting book, Counting Crows is a bit different and that's why it is fun to read as your child practices his or her counting skills.
