I Knew Two Who Said Moo

A Counting and Rhyming Book

Illustrated by Daniel Moreton

About The Book


Award-winning author Judi Barrett and illustrator Daniel Moreton invite young readers to think of numbers, counting, and rhyming in a whole new way.
A Few Words From the Author:
I've always wanted to create a different kind of counting book. I love playing with words, rhyming them, making jokes with them, and playing with their sounds. I had such a good time writing I Knew Two Who Said Moo. I started with the sound of each number, and then thought of other words with similar sounds that I could use to create these nonsense rhymes that do make sense -- in a silly way!
Writing this book made me laugh. I hope it makes you laugh too!
Your friend,
