Count to ten with Canadian wildlife in this playful counting book. 

Here they come… one bighorn sheep jumping, two grebes dancing, three mantids hunting, and many more Canadian critters to count! Each spread presents a number from 1 to 10, along with a playful depiction of the corresponding amount of Canadian wildlife. Each number is shown as a figure, a word, and a quantity of dots to support comprehension. Every spread also includes a lively phrase with an action verb and one other element to count.

Featured wildlife includes mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, and fish — creatures from diverse environments across Canada. Geraldo Valério’s signature paper collage illustrations are simple yet sophisticated, full of color and movement, and make counting fun! An informational spread at the end includes spot art and facts about the featured wildlife.

  • Companion to the best-selling Moose, Goose, Animals on the Loose!
  • Engaging learning tool that introduces numbers from 1 to 10
  • Canadian content abounds with a diverse range of recognizable animals whimsically represented
