Baker, Keith 1-2-3 Peas Beach Lane Books, 2012. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
This is a counting book from 1-10, then counting by tens to one hundred (it skips the teens). The counting is done with some rhyming and there are peas to illustrate the number amount. The peas are ADORABLE!
I think kids will have fun counting the peas, but the kids would have to be older to count as high as one hundred. Which brings me to the conundrum of this book-it’s cute and fun for preschool kids learning how to count, but because it skips the teens and then starts going by the tens it would have to be for older kids who might think they are too old for the cute little peas. It’s an adorable book and a fun concept, so regardless of my worries I think it’s advisable.
