Torres, J. Checkers and Dots at the Beach Illustrated by Jennifer Lum Tundra Books, 2013. $8.99 BOARD BOOK Content: G
A little boy and girl, with their dog and cat, go to the beach where they encounter different sea life. They find five different animals and count from one to five: one crab, two clams, three turtles, four gulls and five fish. The last page spread shows the boy and girl with their cat and dog with all of the sea animals interacting.
This book is completely done in black and white and the illustrations are simple and adorable. The counting fits into a storyline and the storyline rhymes making it fun to read aloud. This is a great book for newborns and little ones.
