Double Play by Betsy Franco
Jill and Jake are two monkeys who will teach little ones about numbers by watching them play at recess.
Tricycle Press published this book and sent me a copy for review (thank you). The subtitle is: Monkeying Around With Addition. The illustrations were done by Doug Cushman.
I really liked the way Ms. Franco presented this lesson on numbers. It's simple, it makes sense, and the monkeys make it fun! The text rhymes, the illustrations are colorful, and children will have great fun counting out loud to prove the numbers add up to that.
This is a very simple way to help your child learn to count in a silly fun way with delightful characters. Why not grab a copy for the little one in your life?
