This is a fantastic counting book. There are lots of things to count on every page, with fun and detailed pictures in the usual style of Richard Scarry. The story is simple but entertaining, even though the book might be a little long to read in one go for a small kid, because it does require a lot of attention.

The text really helps to explain number to kids. Adding and subtracting are introduced with simple sentences ("One bunny and one bunny make two bunnies." or "Four bunnies go home. That leaves just one bunny.") and children are encouraged to group items in smaller sets as they count ("Eight pies: five pies are burned, but three are baked just right.").

After number twenty the book goes ten by ten all the way to one hundred. Again, the text makes it clear that these big numbers are made putting together various groups of ten. The pictures are busy but not confusing - my favorite is the picture with one hundred fireflies in the night sky.

The last two pages show give some practice, using pictures, in adding small numbers.

I read the first part with my three year old boy and he seemed to love both the math theme and the story. He especially enjoyed the part where Mother Cat is trying to catch a flying watermelon :) Good fun, while practicing important reasoning skills!

This is the best counting book ever. My son loved it when he was little and I was delighted to find it was still available when I was looking for a book for my grandson. Be prepared for a long story hour, however. It takes time to count everything on every page all the way up to the 99 fireflies.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 22 month old is pretty consistently counting to 10 after reading this book just a handful of times. Before the book I would count to 10 in the car every so often and she would primarily listen. While the book has a lot of different items to count, the content can be a little overwhelming for a 22 month old but the book is listed for 4 years and up. Some of the pages focus on a specific number ad will have a lot going on which may be too much for a 2 yo. We usually will pick one type of item for that particular number we are counting and count just those items and move on to the next page and number. We're sticking to 1-10 for now and will move on to higher numbers once she's good with it. It's a long book and I'm looking forward to exploring new content soon. The illustrations are great and keep her attention well. There's also adding, subtacting and grouping of numbers.

This book is great for children ages 2-8. It introduces basic adding concepts and allows children to escape in the amazing world of Richard Scarry. It is one of my son's absolute favorite books, next to Cars, Trucks, and Things that Go.

Colorful and whimsical illustrations by Scarry. Best Counting Book Ever is useful to teach basic counting, but also will grow with your kids as they learn more about numbers.

My boy is turning 4 this year! He loves us to read this book to him. Now he follows what the book teaches! Count everything he see everyday, just like the Rabbit in the book!
