Little Kid’s (19 mos old) counting sounds like this right now, 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10. Then she dissolves into a fit of giggles. She loves 9 & 10 for some reason. Ask her how old she is, she says “9” proudly.
So when I pulled Pete the Cat: Five Little Pumpkins, by Kimberly & James Dean, out for Halloween, she immediately fell in love. This bouncy rhyme, paired with fun, bright illustrations is perfect for read aloud time, and for working on counting (with pumpkins of course!).
You can see this, and other Halloween books, on my Halloween Book List on the “Topical Book List” page.
You can also find it in my Bookshop Shop in the Halloween List.
