Cow and Pig are helping Mouse make a delicious soup, but Pig keeps trying to add ingredients that don’t make sense! Mouse is making a yummy pot of soup and Cow and Pig are helping add ingredients. Mouse adds four tomatoes, Cow adds five potatoes, and Pig adds…six galoshes?! Is that wise, Pig? Young readers will be so busy giggling at Pig’s antics, they won’t even realize they are counting, too. A twist ending and irresistible characters will make this a favorite read-aloud.
I loved this one. It made me laugh! It would work well for Preschool Storytime or Toddler Time. It could also work well as a readaloud for kids in kindergarten and first grade. (And for first and second graders to read on their own.)
I was having so much fun that I didn’t remember later that it was a counting book.
