From one spotty giraffe to ten swimming fish the animals in this book are beautifully illustrated while the number pops up making it easy to see. The seven screeching toucans and eight furry pandas are particularly delightful. ~ Julia Eccleshare


Animal Counting by Petr Horacek

Includes fun illustrations with simple pop-up pages that count from one spotty giraffe to ten swimming fish. Interactive pops encourage first numeracy in the youngest of children.

Petr Horacek's original and award-winning art uses stunning techniques including collage.
