Little children love animals, and in this delightful board book Emily Bolam uses wonderful textured illustrations of animals to introduce babies and toddlers to the numbers from one through five.

On every page there is the name of the highlighted number, a picture of the number, and an illustration showing a corresponding number of animals. The charming spotted Dalmatian dogs, the striped tigers, and the colorful fish will delight curious little hands that like to explore textured surfaces that have bumps, ridges, and dots.
