A pretty straightforward counting book, featuring animals that are more commonly found in cold climates, but are not as familiar to children. Great for a winter themed storytime.

This board book would be great reading one on one with a child. The snow creeping in little by little is almost imperceptible at first, but kids will get a kick out of seeing a blizzard move in. Counting on Snow has some great vocabulary and animals that are not common knowledge.
