Are you ready? It's a race! How many HOW MANY's can you guess? Twelve energetic children race through the pages of this colorful counting book as each tackles a different HOW MANY question phrased and answered in sprightly verse. Swept along by the pace, readers will count to 12 with the racers and pick up fun facts as they go: the ONE boy who jumped over the candlestick, the names of the FOUR seasons, and the SEVEN colors of a rainbow, just to name a few. With pictures as energetic and full of surprises as the rollicking verse, this clever book celebrates the joys of counting.
