Everyone Counts

When one tiger cub comes across an abandoned lot, he doesn’t see a dump like everyone else. He sees a zoo — if he can get everyone to pitch in and help. He’ll need two rhinos to bulldoze the trash, three lemurs to paint the walls, four oryx to cut out windows, and five bears to carve out burrows and tunnels and lairs. Before long, everyone has a job. But what about the bugs? They’re eager to jump in, but the other animals think that they’re too small to help. Will they be turned away or is this a project where everyone counts? Your young zookeepers will clap with glee as they learn how to count up to ten in this joyful story of teamwork and acceptance.
