Counting 10 to 20

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 2
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Everyone knows the three bears. Counting to three is easy! It’s those numbers between 10 and 20 that are difficult for pre-schoolers to learn—unless, of course, they join these 11 bears at the beach! Frolicking with the bears makes learning to count from 10 to 20 as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Publishers Weekly

“Long outshadowed in the counting-book genre by their single-digit predecessors, numerals 10 through 20 get their day in the sun when 11 friendly-looking, swimsuit-clad bears turn a trip to the beach into a numbers game. Yektai. . . debuts as an illustrator in this clever exercise, which involves counting 13 towels, 15 sandwiches, 18 pails, etc. . . Winsome and carefree watercolor (of course) illustrations have obvious kid appeal.”
