Counting/Numbers Books

Hey Kylie, I’m trying to find a number picture book that goes past 10. I’d love an aussie one, but don’t like my chances. Any ideas? – Julia

Hi Julia, It seems there are a lot that go to ten and I couldn’t find any really that went above 21. I haven’t read these but here are a few suggestions and yes one is Australian. I’ll start with that one.

The Number One Aussie Counting Book, by Heath McKenzie

From ‘1 wonderful wombat’ to ‘21 baby crocs’, this is not just another counting book. It has lyrical prose to challenge the developing reader, and Heath McKenzie’s trademark funky Aussie animals.

Learning to read and count has never been so much fun.
