Toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten children may enjoy this delightful book, The Big Storm , as they learn how to count from 1 to 10.
In the forest, a big storm is on the way. The animals seek shelter in a hill hollow and as they do so children learn how to count from one to ten (they also learn how to count backward from ten to one). The illustrations are excellent because they help young children see how adding one more to a number increases the number by one, and the arrangement of the animals on each page allows children to easily see and grasp the concept of addition. Another wonderful feature of this book is the opportunity to increase young children's vocabulary; the book is full of words that will likely be new to young listeners. You can also use this book when teaching weather, seasons, animals, and habitats!
This is a book you may wish to purchase for your clsasroom or home library in shaa' Allaah. Of course, the next time you visit your local library, check the shelf and if you find The Big Storm, check it out!
Enjoy & Benefit In shaa' Allaah!
