"Counting Cockatoos" joins the raising readers collection!

Counting Cockatoos

Counting Cockatoos is the new book given at the 18 month well-child visit!

Count all kinds of creatures as they tumble, rumble, slink and flap across the pages of this playful book!

Count to twelve with help from tumbling tigers, winking owls and more, while you search for the two cockatoos hidden on every page!

Why raising readers Has Selected This Book:

The selection committee always likes to include a counting book in the collection. The committee was struck by the great colors in this book and the fun language (who would not want to say "cockatoos" again and again?!).

"Counting Cockatoos" Activity

On pieces of paper, make bird shapes with a black crayon or marker. Don't worry about them being perfect, the illustrator of COUNTING COCKATOOS draws her cockatoos in a very loose fashion. Have your young reader color the bird. They do not have to stay in the lines or even use different colors. Anything will work. When they are done, cut the birds out around your black outline. Put tape on the back and hang them somewhere in the house and have your young reader find them. You can change their position every day when they are sleeping and make it a game when they wake up.
