Count to ten with Canadian wildlife in this playful counting book! One bighorn sheep jumping, two grebes dancing, three mantids hunting, and many more Canadian critters to count. Featured wildlife includes mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, and fish — creatures from diverse environments across Canada. Geraldo Valério’s signature paper collage illustrations are simple yet sophisticated, full of color and movement, and make counting fun.
