Little Houses, A Counting Book: Helen Musselwhite

I have fallen in love with Laurence King publishers. Prepare to be wowed by their contributions for our smallest readers.

Little Houses, A Counting Book by Helen Musselwhite is a perfect example. Portraying an array of house types, your totz will enjoy the paper constructions demonstrating the featured number. Various other animals and objects are included to echo the digit as well. A final spread illustrates each of the houses alongside their number. Four additional pages present the kinds of houses from around the world that were shown, from a chalet in Switzerland to a Ndebele house in South Africa. Older sibs will enjoy the information.

This picture book has a feeling of space and room for all the houses, numbers, and creatures. The heavy pages will resist an accidental tear from your totz.

I'm looking forward to seeing more from Laurence King. Wouldn't board books be lovely?
