Book Number 473 – How Many Snails by Paul Giganti

Book Jacket for: How many snails? : a counting bookLittle N was fascinated with this one.  I think he liked the clear pictures.  It was a bit complex for him to follow everything – For example, you first count everything on the page, and then narrow down and then narrow down again – how many snails, how many snails with striped shells, how many snails with striped shells with their heads sticking out.  Will be fun to revisit

Book Number 216 – My Bus by Byron Barton

I picked this up because I loved the colorful cover, and I knew Little N loved buses.  I didn’t have time to read it before we got into the car, but I gave it to Little N to peruse while in his car seat.  I heard him chime bus, plane, train, and boat.  I wondered what he was babbling on about.  Well, when we got home and read the story – sure enough there were all those modes of transportation.  Pair that with a couple of cats and dogs, and you have one fine story for toddlers, not to mention a bit of simple math going on!
