LITTLE HOUSES: A Counting Book

Do you love seeing a child learning to count for the first time? If so, you will love Little Houses: A Counting Book,a wonderful new picture book from Laurence King Publishing. It is full of educational lessons that not only teach children to learn to count, but also helps to teach children about colors, hand-eye coordination skills, and memory skills .

What makes Little Houses: A Counting Book a unique picture book is its introduction of the different types of houses that are from various countries around the world, including Sweden, South Africa and Japan. The book's extra large size is an extra bonus. Another unique feature of Little Houses is the photographs of construction paper houses that stand in for traditional illustrations that you normally see in children's picture books. This really makes the book that more special.

Little Houses is great for both parents and teachers to share with children. For parents, it's a great book to bond with a child, as it is interactive, and reads like playing a memory game, or "find the hidden picture" if you will. For educators, it's a great book for teaching how to count from 1 to 10, but it also educates the reader about different cultures, giving a fun lesson in geography as well as one in math. If you are looking for a fun, unique, educational children's book, Little Houses: A Counting Book is a must-read, especially for children ages 2 to 6 years old, as well as children with special needs who may learn to count in later years. A truly brilliant book, and one that makes a wonderful gift for this holiday season!
