123 Cats: A Cat Counting Book

author: Lesléa Newman

Cat Number One has nothing to do . . .
Until she makes friends with Cat Number Two.

Meet cats from one to a dozen in this adorable board book introduction to counting with a feline twist. Author Lesléa Newman draws on her love for (and familiarity with) cats in a concept book for the very young, while illustrator Isabella Kung captures the animals’ movements and gestures in a way that is sure to delight.

Count on cats as a fun way to learn numbers—in rhyming spreads with expressive appeal for animal lovers of all ages.
