"Jump zebras! Stretch, giraffes! Wiggle, worms! Count, children!"

Why should children have to sit still while they learn? In this book, toddlers can count from one to ten while they wiggle with the worms, jump with the zebras, and stretch with the giraffes. Older children may want to keep on counting, by ones or tens, until the last of fifty bees flies by. But even then young tots won't feel left out--they can leap with the frogs or wave good-bye to the bees.
Simple enough for the youngest child at home, yet challenging enough for older siblings in school, this book is as energetic as the children it's meant for.
