This book combines simple animal recognition with counting up to five. Maisy serves as the guide as she introduces a single, stripy tiger, two tortoises, three butterflies, four yellow fish, and five snails. Besides illustrations of each of the critters, you'll find the individual numbers displayed using bright colors.

The beauty of this book is that as the child gets older it will still be a favorite because it can be used for counting practice and word recognition. In fact, for some youngsters this could well be a transition book used to teach basic reading skills.

The Maisy concept series also includes titles on colors and letters. The book's sturdy construction will stand up to months of constant use and wear.
