Teeth, Tails, and Tentacles: An Animal Counting Book by Christopher Wormell
What a stunningly illustrated counting book! Wormell's thickly lined block-print illustrations are quite
spectacular. This is definitely a book that grows with the reader! It
works for teaching numbers and counting, as little ones can
for and count the
animal characteristic being featured (ie: the five arms of the
starfish), plus it's full of interesting facts about animal physiology
and habitats -- which is great for older kids.

Below are sample illustrations and a sample spread.
We've included small versions of the illustrations (above) because we're trying to entice you to get this fabulous book. :) But...the small images don't do the real illustrations justice. In the actual book, each vibrant illustration is full-page and is next to the corresponding number page (like in the sample spread below.)
