Counting in the Crazy Garden
I was just sent a copy of Margarette Burnette's book, Counting in the Crazy Garden. This is in her "Chipper Kids" series. What a fun book - not only does it provide lots of counting fun, but it also teaches healthy eating habits AND humor! The illustrations by Brooke Henson are also fun with this story. The story reminded me of when my boys were little and would go outside and make all sorts of lucious "treats" for me to be tempted with!!! (Not many of those would you ever want to eat ~ but hey, at least they were being creative!) That is exactly the premise of this book - it's fun. Don't miss her awesome website as well - http://www.chipperkids.com/ - it has free games and coloring pages!!
