The Baseball Counting Book by Barbara Barbieri McGrath

The Baseball Counting Book

Similar to an alphabet book, this book has a page for each number 0 to 20. It starts with the score is zero to zero; then one ball, one bat, and one call; then two teams; and at the end nineteen ice-cream cones to celebrate; and twenty baseball cards. After reading the book to the whole class, have book discussions in small groups. Children can practice counting the objects on each page as well as noticing that some numbers are bigger than others (i.e., 20 is much bigger than 2).
