About the Book

Overview

This delightful counting book of poetry and pictures on the Texas 2x2 Reading List captures animals by the numbers. Vivid, playful poems tell the stories of one elk, two birds, three fish—from one through ten and then many—as they go about their day either solo or within a special circle of friends. The marvelous photographs allows readers to peek at some common creatures that enjoy the company of others.
