Introducing toddlers to reading at an early age has many advantages. It helps the toddler develop a love for printed words, even though he or she can’t yet recognize the words. Additionally, young children can develop their auditory skills by listening to an adult read to them.
As a parent and teacher, I fully understand the need to capture the imaginations of young children. The idea is to make learning fun, and Count 1, 2, 3 with Me does that in a captivating fashion. In the book, we see many happy, smiling children, playing games, walking and doing fun filled activities that all children love to engage in.
The rhyme is musical and so much fun to read. Here are some examples of the musical rhymes in the book:
Three little girls shop with their mother,
happy to be with one another.
Two ears listen so we can hear,
and two arms hug those who are dear.
Three small boys wrestle with their dad.
Playing with him makes them glad.
Four playful puppies jump and run,
excited to play outdoors in the sun.
The colorful artwork will easily draw the attention of toddlers. This is so important, since young children have a short attention span. I recommend Count 1,2, 3 with Me for every home and preschooler classroom.
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.
Connie Arnold takes us on a fun filled journey of rhyme and learning how to count to ten through different activities in Count 1, 2, 3 with Me lending a perfect opportunity to discuss what you think happens next. Arnold does a superb job in keeping the attention of the reader through her expert rhyme and story telling technique.
The whimsical illustrations created by Ginger Nielson add to the delight of learning rhyme and counting without feeling like you are learning.
He slowly, slowly creeps around."
Thus begins this lovely, educational picture book to teach children to count from one to ten. The rhyme is musical and a pleasure to read aloud. The illustrations by Ginger Nielson are in one word, beautiful, especially the ones depicting animals.
Here's another example of the verse:
"Four playful puppies jump and run,
excited to play outdoors in the sun."
And so it continues until number ten.
This is the perfect book for parents with young children who are learning how to count. The text will engage them and the artwork will capture their imaginations. Highly recommended!
