1 to 20, Animals Aplenty

1 to 20, Animals Aplenty is a sweet and simple rhyming counting book for the youngest. Released 10th Feb 2020 by Laurence King, it's 48 pages and available in hardcover format.

The text and illustrations by Katie Viggers are whimsical and appealing. There is a surprising amount of detail and some of the pictures include specific breeds of animals for more fun. There are goats in coats, and a fox in socks. Not all of the animals are strictly rhyming (capybaras are eating bananas in fact), but most of them are.

This is a very fun book. There's a recap spread at the end of the book with all the animals in order and will be make a fun recap activity to see how many rhymes readers can remember. The cats wearing fezzes is worth the price of admission by itself.

Four stars.
