Bear Counts is the latest book in the Bear series by Karma Wilson. This book, with gorgeous illustrations by Jane Chapman, introduces counting to younger Bear fans.
Bear and Mouse go about their day, and as they do Bear counts the things that he sees. It's a simple concept, with lyrical rhyming text and repetition, perfect for reading aloud with little ones. The book only goes up to the number 5, so there isn't too much for a younger child to take in, and I like that it has the numbers both written as a number and spelled out. The final page contains all the numbers in the book, so that you can help children to recognise and find them in the larger picture.
It's a very sweet book, and a perfect introduction to numbers and counting for small children.
