Math Picture Book: <em>One, Two, Three!</em>

This is part of the Teaching Math with Picture Books series.

I’m a big fan of Sandra Boynton. So when I found her One, Two Three! book at a resale shop I was ecstatic.

Sandra Boynton’s One, Two Three! is a board book! So you can introduce all these great math concepts to your toddler!

Head out and get a copy and tell me what you think in the comments. And don’t forget to share it on twitter!
