One-osaurus, Two-osaurus by Kim Norman is a fun counting book and perfect for little ones learning to count and work on number recognition. The first page had me with this alliteration; "one misty, moist morning..." try to say that a few times fast. Onomatopoeia appeared next with "Rumble. Rattle. and more. The story is based on nine dinosaurs playing hide and seek with number ten finding them. I thought at first this was a simple counting book and realized quickly it could be a fun mentor text for playing with words and thinking about word choice as an author.
A huge shoutout to Candlewick Press for sending along this Advanced Reader Copy.
