lit list | top 10 counting books

Last Tuesday I shared ten of our favorite animal books in a post here and had so much fun putting the list together I thought I'd continue this week with ten of our favorite counting books. Olivia loves to count and each of these books make it so much fun with their beautiful illustrations. These days, Poppy enjoys flipping through the board books that Olivia stacks in front of her any time we sit down to read, even though sometimes I think she would rather eat them ;)

All these books are not only great for learning the basics of counting 1-10 or 1-20 but also for number recognition and understanding quantity, since many of them have representative pictures which accompany each number, which is really key to a child understanding the concept of numbers & quantity and eventually addition and subtraction.
one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten

Are any of these favorites in your home?! To see more of our favorites, be sure to follow along on instagram @blessednestblog with my #BlessedNestLitList series & check out the Lit List tab as well!
