Reviews - What do customers think about The Counting Race?
Good for 1st grader who is not an early reader Mar 7, 2007
This book was good for my son who is in 1st grade, but not an early reader. The story line, as in the entire series, is slightly different from other early readers. In this case, the children brainstorm in order to count to 10 in one second. While the book is solid, it does not have as strong a story line as some of the others in the series. My son was proud to be able to read the book. The illustrations are good and there is a lot of detail worthy of discussion. At the same time, it is relatively simple and not one a child would want to read over and over. Get free shipping and share the book with other children or donate to the class. I highly recommend the Robin Hill School series by Margaret McNamara.
