Kid’s Book Review: Name Your Numbers

About the Book and Author and Illustrator

A bright, cheerful and stylish board book introducing the numbers one to ten along with lots of different animals – with a pop-out surprise with lots of teeth at the end!

From elephant’s two tusks to bee’s three stripes, from lion’s four paws to koala’s five claws, each animal has a special number for children to count.

With rounded corners and sturdy pages perfect for little hands, this rhythmic, rhyming text combined with bright pictures and glossy pages will have little ones enjoying turning the pages whilst learning their numbers one – ten.
