Item description for One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab: A Counting by Feet Book by April Pulley Sayre...

What do one hundred sunbathing snails have in common with ten crabs in inner tubes? Check out this mirthful counting book with a focus on feet.

If one is a snail and two is a person, we must be counting by feet! Just follow the sign to the beach, where a bunch of fun-loving crabs, lounging dogs, gleeful insects, and bewildered-looking snails obligingly offer their feet for counting in a number of silly, surprising combinations - from one to one hundred!
April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre are a husband-and-wife team who lead ecotours and travel extensively to study, photograph, and videotape animals in the rain forests of Panama, Madagascar, and Ecuador. They also speak at schools, botanical gardens, zoos, and nature festivals. Together they wrote a natural history book for adults. Jeff Sayre is an ecologist specializing in native plants and birds. April Pulley Sayre is an award-winning author of more than forty books for children. The Sayres love to brainstorm and laugh together - which is how the idea for ONE IS A SNAIL came about.

Randy Cecil graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and is the illustrator of numerous books for children. He says of ONE IS A SNAIL, "It was great fun to figure out how these strange creatures would react in all these different combinations. Crabs seem to have the best time together!"

Reviews - What do customers think about One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab: A Counting by Feet Book?

Excellent and Funny Counting Book  Feb 17, 2007
I loved the concept of this book and how they showed different ways of counting to 10, 20, 30, etc. Very humerous and can be quite interactive with kids.
Educational book made fun!  Nov 14, 2004
What a fantastic book! Kids follow a story of a beach party where they learn how to count based on the number of feet on different animals! They can practice basic addition and counting by different sets (2's, 4's, 10's). The illustrations are so kid friendly and fun and the story you follow is sure to put a smile on your face, especially all that the crabs do!
I read this book to a class of Kindergarteners who recently had learned to count by 10's and were learning how to count by 2's. They had such a great time using their newly acquired skills and every page we had to stop on and count all the different feet as many ways as they knew how. It is a great educational book made fun for kids of all ages.
Math should always be this much fun!  Dec 31, 2003
Creatures with varying amount of feet lend themselves to be part of a mathematical beach party. Youngsters are drawn into this story by bright, colorful humorous but simple illustrations. Crabs are the real stars as they bicycle, limbo, and play beach volleyball across the pages. While following the story, readers gain an understanding of numbers, counting, adding, and sets. Readers also discover the world of science while reading about these playful animals. Don't miss this very creative book.
Count on this one!  Sep 9, 2003
One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab is a rare success--it's fun and educational at the same time. Clever combinations of characters' feet will keep readers turning pages to find out what adds up next. Humorous illustrations of appealing animals are a plus in this delightful counting book!
