Carlo Likes Counting

Carlo Likes Counting

by Jessica Spanyol Illustrated by Jessica Spanyol

A playful celebration of the everyday things in a child's world — and the fun of finding out you can count them yourself.

Carlo the giraffe REALLY likes counting, and he counts everywhere he goes. He counts cups in the coffee shop, squirrels in the park, bears in the toy store, even his mother in the backyard. 

In the same style as Carlo Likes Reading, Jessica Spanyol's simple text and clever illustrations invite young readers to point, name, and count throughout the day with Carlo.
