Simple, sweet, and utterly charming, this is a book that will teach little ones about basic collectives This adorable counting book includes pictures of children dressed up as their favorite animals—such as geese, butterflies, kangaroos, and frogs—to help teach young ones counting terms. Laid out in accessible two-page spreads, each section includes animals in ones, twos, and then an entire group—for example, "One fish, two fish, and a school of fish." With simple and colorful pictures accompanying the educational text, this is a fun and useful tool for any child to learn basic collective terminology.

First published in Australia, this charming small-format book puts a friendly twist on collective nouns, with rosy-cheeked children dressed in homespun animal costumes that usually involve cardboard contraptions, headbands with ears attached, and brightly patterned apparel.
