Kids Count by authors Nichole Hansen and Tevin Hansen is a delightful and larger than life children’s picture book that is an educational tool as well as a creative device to encourage children to learn how to count the numbers one through ten. Each number is assigned to a specific child character who is that particular age. There is also a rhyme that is used throughout the story-telling that also might serve as a way for a child to remember if they can memorize the character’s name with the number.
Nichole Hansen and Tevin Hansen’s book, Kids Count, is an excellent way to help children learn to count. The pages are colorful and varied, and the rhymes that follow as part of the story-telling itself are catchy and easy to remember, if a child needs to be quizzed on a number. I feel that Kids Count is a must-have book in a classroom for those just learning their numbers, as it would prove to be of great use to many kids who are at the stage of learning to count.
This particular book reminded me of one of my favorite children's books as a child, 10 Little Monkeys, in the way that the repetitiveness of the story-telling and the catchy tune of it all in my mind made me remember it. Aside from my ABCs, I believe that the first rhyme I ever remembered reciting was 10 Little Monkeys. Kids Count has a way of helping kids learn to memorize at a young age that I think will also prove to be helpful as they grow older.
