Book Review: 1, 2, 3 From Land and Sea
Authors Kathy Kesner and Irene Kueh have made this more than a typical book about numbers. Instead, they created a story with an introduction, a story about each number and a conclusion. And it all rhymes! The pages are very colorful, sure to grab the attention of the little ones. The illustration reflects the individual story of each number (and zero is included). Each number has corresponding art of what is being described in the text. For example, number three's rhyme talks about kittens. There are three kittens in the picture as well as numerous '3s' in different colors and styles.
The only flaw I see in the book is that it is all paper. I think this book would benefit being a board book or constructed with heavier, more durable paper. My 20-month old is already a lover of books, but I don't think I'll let her have free reign on it until she's older.
She did enjoy it, though!
