About The Book

Learning how to count has never been yuckier! 

With an outrageously furry cover and playful 1-2-3s, The Yuckiest—and Most Fun—Counting Book in the World celebrates how fun counting can be! This colorful counting book pairs numbers with silly rhymes and hilarious illustrations to create a delightfully fun journey from 1 through 10 and beyond! Including…

1 muddy puddle, squishy and mucky
2 shoes, reeking and grimy
3 baby diapers, goopy and poopy
4 pickle ice creams, sour, bitter, and drippy
5 apples, rotten and wormy

It’s the funniest way to get from 1 to 10! Just look at the cover: draped in striped, brightly colored fur, The Yuckiest—and Most Fun—Counting Book in the World boasts a so-ugly-its-cute aesthetic that will 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 book pages built to last. Revisit the fun of learning with this whimsical exploration of the 1-2-3s. Now kids will never forget their numbers!
