Description

Counting with Munsch is as easy as 123!

Introducing the first-ever Robert Munsch counting book, beautifully styled in an oversized board book format perfect for gifting. Just as Classic Munsch ABC helps toddlers master the alphabet, Classic Munsch 123 uses favorite characters and illustrations from the wonderful world of Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko to provide a delightful introduction to numeracy.

Numbers one through twelve are represented as numerals and are spelled out for early reading recognition. At the end, in one of two brand-new illustrations by Michael Martchenko just for this book, a joyful parade introduces the concept of numbers in sequence while providing an opportunity to repeat and reinforce the early numeracy concepts from previous pages. Like its companion ABC, Classic Munsch 123 is a must-have addition to every child's first library.

Editorial Reviews

“A delightful and slightly zany introduction to numeracy.” 

Best Books for Kids & Teens, Canadian Children’s Book Center, 01/20

“A high-spirited text housed in a sturdy board book is partnered with illustrations that are action-packed and simply delightful. They are full of colour, expression and detail. The large, colourful numbers dance through the pages introducing young readers to the skill of numeracy.” 

Storywraps, 12/24/18

Classic Munsch 123 is an obvious home, childcare and public library purchase, but it would not be out a place in kindergarten classrooms.”
