Real squirrels, real photos! Learn your numbers with Oakley the Squirrel in this charming counting book featuring Oakley and friends on a camping trip.
Oakley the Squirrel: Camping 1, 2, 3! is a counting book like no other. Oakley and his woodland friends embark on a camping adventure and count all the tools, toys, and treats they brought with them: 1 red and white camper, 2 blue coolers, 3 cozy sleeping bags, 4 little lanterns, and so on. As dusk settles, they use 9 logs to build a campfire, toast 10 tasty marshmallows, and cozy up to catch some Zzzzs under the stars.
Each page features photos of real, wild squirrels—no photoshopping! Photographer Nancy Rose lures the squirrels (and one adorable chipmunk!) into her photo frame using peanuts and sunflower seeds strategically placed throughout the squirrel-sized sets she builds herself. Plus, there’s backmatter that recaps all the numbers from one to ten, for extra counting practice.
The result is quirky, original, and oh-so-much-fun. A perfect way to introduce essential early learning concepts, like counting from one to ten, to the very youngest readers.
