Description from Peachtree Publishing: A stunningly gorgeous counting book with a delightful surprise.
One hungry fox with two sly eyes is on the prowl…three plump hens had better watch out! Rich and colorful illustrations plunge the reader into a dramatic and exciting story set in a moonlit farmyard. With something different to count on each page, learning to count from one to ten has never been so thrilling!
This surprisingly simple counting book with a gripping tale, great for early education and read-alouds, has a hugely satisfying ending that’s sure to delight generations.
Quick thoughts on the book:
Sometimes I think I have seen all of the possible ways that authors and illustrators can create counting books, and then of course, I come across something new. At the beginning of April, I received a box in the mail from Peachtree Publishing. Whenever a box with a book(s) arrive, it is exciting, but on occasion, when I open a box, there are additional surprises. Imagine opening a box and brightly colored feathers float out of the box and land all around?! As a result, I had to read the book immediately.
Unfortunately, I don’t seem to have a picture of the box with feathers. I may have been trying to keep them all in the box and totally gave up on photographing them. However, I did post a picture of the cover to Instagram with a comment about finding feathers floating around my living room. More importantly than the feathers, I loved Kate Read’s fabulous counting book with just the right twist at the end and her beautiful illustrations.
I am excited to be able to reveal the book trailer for One Fox: A Counting Book Thriller…
