With trucks, trains, planes, and pirates, this counting book is more than meets the eye. Guided Reading Level G.
When one tractor in the grass runs out of gas, the backyard doesn't stay quiet for long. Soon pirates sail in to play, and the backyard races to life with airplanes, cranes, trucks, and trains.
The simple rhyming text is paired with detailed illustrations depicting the young boy's imaginative games-- three ships full of pirates, four cranes building a city of sandcastles, five trucks zooming across the lawn.
Readers can count along as the vehicles and machines soar, hoist, dig, and zoom in this fantastical number book. Young readers, boys partricularly, will love the trucks, trains, vehicles, and machines--and pirates--that spill across each page. The humorous and imaginative play portrayed in this book perfectly balances its emphasis on counting.
