Story Time: Counting Books

Sharing is caring!

There are so many counting books to choose from. We love to find a new one at the library and I truly believe counting books are the reason that both of my girls learned to count to 10 at a very early age. Recently we went on a quest to find some fun counting books to share with you.

My Granny Went to Market by Stella Blackstone and Christopher Corr was voted the favorite by the girls. In this story, Granny travels the world picking up items starting with one flying carpet in Istanbul to ten llamas in Peru. We loved our trip around the world with Granny and it was fun to see the items she chose on her journey.

One Big Building: A Counting Book About Construction by Michael Dahl is a perfect counting book if your kids are into construction vehicles. Counting along as a building is built starting with one big plan and ending with a twelve story building.

We’re big fans of Doreen Cronin & Betsy Lewin, so their book Click, Clack, Splish, Splash: A Counting Adventure was a natural fit for this list. Once again all the animals fool poor Farmer Brown. Your kids will love what happens after they see one farmer sleeping and two feet creeping.

A little lion cub is looking for friends to play with in Roar!: A Noisy Counting Book by Pamela Duncan Edwards. Unfortunately, his roar tends to scare everyone off! He scares one red monkey and two pink flamingos. Will he ever find a friend to play with?Do your kids have a favorite counting book? Tell me in the comments. I’d love to check them out!
