Counting on it
MUSK OX COUNTS by Erin Cabatingan with illustrations by Matthew Myers. Roaring Brook 2013.
Musk Ox is back from his triumphant debut in A IS FOR MUSK OX, this time to show us how to count from 1 to 10. Trouble is, 1 is a lonely number, and Musk Ox prefers to hang out with the yaks (2) and other animals instead. Despite Zebra's warnings about how Musk Ox is going to confuse readers, the merriment continues all the way to the final pages. Definitely NOT a book to teach counting, but definitely a funny book to share with kids. Meta-math?
