One lonely lion, wondering what to do. Open the flap--along comes a tiger and then there are two! But it doesn't stop there, because tiger keeps going away and gathering other friends. How many will join the crowd? Add one elephant, and that makes three. Will there be more? Yes--a zebra makes four. But if you want to have a party, you really must have five. Say hello to hippopotamus, who has just arrived. Now there's no more lonely lion, only five happy friends, ready for playtime. All kids will love these appealingly drawn animals, the simple, effective story, and the right, primary colors. It's a great way to teach beginning numbers, too! 10 pages (all in color), 7 x 7 1/4 Laminated Board.
