Gardens can be fun places. There are lots of colours, lots of things to do, and lots of things to count! Join this little boy as he explores his garden - one item at a time! I was a big fan of ABC is for Circus, so I wasn't surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I love the big, bright colours and the warm tones. I also liked how once the numbered items were revealed, they were added to a repeating two-page spread. This set-up makes it so easy to talk about the pictures with children: where are the (blank)? What was added? Can we count all of the (blank)? What shape is that? Beyond numbers, the book also uses a cool vocabulary; there are words like turnips, thistles, squirming, and slippery. This is a natural fit for kids who love the outdoors as well as families looking for a new counting book.
