The Yuckiest Counting Book in the World!

Kids will Never Forget Their Numbers!

Illustrated by Rebecca Pry

With an outrageously furry cover and playful 1-2-3s, The Yuckiest Counting Book in the World celebrates how fun counting can be!

Learning to count has never been sillier! This colorful collection cycles through each number, pairing the 1-2-3s with wonderfully silly rhymes and hilarious imagery to create a delightfully fun journey from 1 through 10 and beyond! Including…

1 octopus playing baseball
- 2 puppies balancing on bicycles 
3 dinosaurs taking bubble baths
4 mermaids riding motorcycles 
5 monsters baking cakes
10 (or 100) llamas having a party!

Let this book be a resource for your kids and a reading activity for the whole family! The Yuckiest Counting Book in the World is the funniest way to get from 1 to 10! Just look at the cover: draped in spotty, brightly colored fur, this book boasts a “so-ugly-its-cute” aesthetic that would look good on any bookshelf or nursery. But it’s not what’s on the outside that counts . . . it’s what’s on the inside, which is why we’ve opted for sturdy board pages for this 28-page spread. Revisit the fun of learning with this whimsical exploration of the English language.
