Create silly creatures and count along the way with this unique split-page book. Young readers can match heads to a variety of tails and legs to compose quirky characters. Each flap presents a new opportunity for counting and learning vocabulary words for body parts!

Key Selling Points:

  • ENGAGING FORMAT: Horizontally split pages allow readers to mix and match the tops and bottoms of the pages to create whimsical creatures.
  • MATHEMATICS: Unlike typical counting books for young children, the numbers in this book do not appear in sequence, providing an additional level of challenge with counting.
  • VOCABULARY BUILDING: From “whiskers” to “ankles” children become acquainted with a variety of words that describe body parts of the creatures they can build.
  • GROWS WITH CHILDREN: Children may choose to simply create a variety of creatures or incorporate the counting element as well.
  • CHIC ILLUSTRATIONS: Dutch artist Nelleke Verhoeff’s distinct, contemporary style makes this book a stylish addition to any collection.

“Joyful bonding moments accumulate like fruit from a gently shaken tree every time this utterly charming split-page board book is opened . . . Equally valuable is the innate connectivity of the parent-child reading experience, a satisfying peek-a-boo-like tension and release that tends to keep moms and dads happily in the moment and youngsters excitedly engaged” – Tillywig

“With every turn of the bottom half of the book you get to count and recount a number of different toes, feet, scales, ankles, etc. The top is the same with different numbers of ears and wrinkles and so on and such. If a parent were to enjoy flipping through this with a kid, then the two could count together the new numbers as they present themselves . . . Brilliant!” – Betsy Bird, Librarian, @FuseEight
