Count 1, 2, 3, With Me
One little turtle crawls on the ground.
He slowly, slowly creeps around.
At night, the turtle pulls in his head.
The shell that protects him becomes his bed.
The illustrations of the turtle creeping around and then pulling in his head are vivid and colorful. Just like all of Ginger's art in this beautiful story. The pictures just jump out at you and come alive.
There are boys wrestling and girls shopping. Race cars racing and puppies playing. All the things that little ones love are in this delightfully engaging tale. The ending concludes in just the right place and no one could have written it better.
Published by 4RV Publishing, this story is meant to be read over and over again as little eyes twinkle, little hands stroke the art, and little voices learn to count amidst the giggling and maybe even singing to Connie's beautiful rhymes.
You can learn more about the author/poet or buy any of her books by visiting Connie Arnold's cyber house.
Please visit the illustrator at Ginger Nielson.com.
You can also buy this charming book at Amazon or at 4RV Publishing.
Know any little ones who might want this adorable picture book for Christmas? I can tell you they will not be disappointed! :-)
I received a free PDF of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinion, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
