Book 1: 123 Count with Me by Lucy Martin
From five brave lions to seven shy chameleons, little ones will love to explore this wonderful world and practice counting.
The funny rhyming text and chunky tabs make this book perfect for your little ones to learn numbers 1 to 10.

Book 2: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
This short story by Eric Carle is filled with moral questions on the topics of self-control, well-being and happiness, and growth and change. The caterpillar eats more and more with each passing day, until it does not feel good. It takes eating a “nice leaf” to make him feel better.

A 1993 Caldecott Honor Book
This child’s view of the long day’s work in the cotton fields, simply expressed in a poet’s resonant language, is a fresh and stirring look at migrant family life. “With its restrained poetic text and impressionist paintings, this is a picture book for older readers, too.” — Booklist
