Ten Scared Fish by Ros Moriarty

cover image

Allen and Unwin, 2012. ISBN: 9781742379128.
(Age 2-5) With turtles by the waterhole, snakes in the river grass and fish in the saltwater, all seems to be well until the arrival of a shark changes the dynamics.
This simple counting book continues to add animals until the appearance of the wide open mouth of the threatening shark. Young children would enjoy counting along with the addition of each animal. Basic shapes used to create the illustrations could easily be copied by young children as the artwork holds much appeal.
