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.
