The Five Mile Press, 2016. ISBN 9781760401498
(Age: 2-4) Recommended. One half of the Panda Paws duo by Katie Saunders, Count with Panda is a sturdy lift the flap book aimed for children aged 2-4. Perfect for early language development, Panda and her pals need your help to learn to count. Readers explore the hidden pictures behind the doors as children develop their language and counting skills.
Ideal for children in the toddler years, Count with Panda is a bright and engaging learning experience with surprises to find behind flaps found on every page. Additionally, Panda is adorably drawn with big eyes and will appeal to young and early readers. Katie Saunders provides children with several opportunities to explore and engage as they turn each page. The only concern surrounding the book is durability. Although it is thick and sturdy, it may be seen as a struggle for little fingers to open the flaps.
