Fish Eyes: A Book You Can Count On
Swimming through the deep blue pages of this 6 3/4 x 11 3/8" volume, a little black fish invites readers to count from one to ten as each page spread presents an increasing number of brightly colored fish. This skillfully designed book incorporates easy addition into a patterned rhyming text. Small circles die-cut into every page serve as brightly colored eyes on fishes, as well as a visual and sensory means of keeping the count. ©1990 Cooperative Children's Book Center
