Count on the Subway by Paul Dubois Jacobs, Jennifer Swender

I think this could actually be fun.  Subway rides can get monotonous if you go the same way each day.  Why not find things you can count and turn it into a game?

Random House Children's Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 13th, so check for a copy then.

Dan Yaccarino does the illustrations and they are bright colored and feel like New York.  The text is simple and easy to follow, and it rhymes, too.  If you live in a bigger city and travel by bus, train or subway, this would be a great book for your young one.  We used to watch for different license plates and whoever got the most variety won.  This is a game of numbers, too, but you don't have to watch for traffic like we did in a car.

Look for different things to count on your trips.  And be sure you participate, too.  Make it a family fun game.  Little ones don't forget things like that and family memories are precious.

Happy reading.
