Count 1, 2, 3 with Me, by Connie Arnold and illustrated by Ginger Nielson, is a lovely rhyming, counting book. Parents will enjoy sharing it with their preschoolers. And teachers can read it aloud with their early kindergarten students learning to count to ten.
The book takes you all over with happy, smiling children, playing games, walking, and viewing the world through wonder-filled eyes. They see normal daily home life scenes. They see pets in the park and wild animals in their zoo habitats. They see insects, games, and fun activities -- everything that children can relate to in their world and at their level.
This sweet book is complemented by Ginger Nielson’s beautiful artwork which illustrates the scenes that go with the counting to ten lessons. Her illustrations are full of life and energy. They cry out to kids to be active and experience everything that a child’s life can be.
This is a book that kids will enjoy and easily relate to. We see them playing ball, walking and Yo-yo-ing, learning to tie their shoes, watching nature, going to the park, playing with puppies, visiting the zoo, shopping and cuddling with Mom, wrestling with Dad, and even learning the days of the week. It’s a joyful comment on the different kinds of fun children can have everywhere they are -- as long as they are open to the possibilities.
