You and your child will have so much fun with this numbers with this garden-based counting book. One Tomato makes counting a joyous learning experience as it introduces young readers to the shapes and concepts of the numbers in a pleasurable walk through the garden. One Tomato will help children build their confidence with numbers even as they learn about garden plants, vegetables, and bugs. A common dandelion guides children through the book, hiding somewhere on each page. With sturdy pages and rounded corners, One Tomato is durable and safe for lots of learning fun.
Endorsement: I’m a preschool teacher and I LOVED this board book. Perfect for 2-6 year olds, the bold, bright art really holds kiddos’ attention and the rhyming story explores counting in a fun way- while strolling through a garden full of vegetables and insect/animal friends. The seek-and-find dandelion on each page makes for a fun interactive game too. I’ve given One Tomato as a gift and used it in the classroom. Always a hit! You can’t go wrong with this one! — IndyMom1
