100 Peas if you please {Books for Kids}

I love it when by a complete stroke of luck you pick up a book at the library that the kids fall in love with and you wish you actually owned it.

1-2-3 peas by Keith Baker is a delightfully colourful counting and rhyming story that takes the reader from 1 all the way to 100 with a whole bunch of peas. For my numbers-mad four year old it really is a joy turning every page.

The story goes from 1 pea searching - look, look look to 2 peas fishing - hook, hook hook.

Every page has a delightful rhyme all the way up to 10, and then jumps through the teens in one quick page - skip, skip skip.

After this the book jumps through the tens - with some great rhyme and colour and if you're so inclined, you can count the peas on each page - there really are sixty on the Sixty page

And to help out your little counter, there are 100 peas holding flags on the 100 page.

In the past 3 or so months, Mylo has successfully mastered counting all the way to 100 so this book is great reinforcement of his skill, in a fun way.

The cheapest I found 1-2-3 Peas was on Book Depository for $18 including delivery and I must admit I'm very tempted to get it and its companion story LMNO Peas.
