Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll Walsh

In this thrilling picture book a snake gathers up ten mice, counting them one-by-one, as he pops them into a jar to eat later. But, the mice outsmart him and free themselves counting back ten, nine, eight,… This book is great for practicing the counting sequence, talking about 4 mice is more than 3 mice, and beginning to practice counting on (starting with 3 and counting 4, 5, 6).


Children can retell the story, practicing counting to 10 with these homemade props
