Ten Furry Monsters - Calmenson

Ten Furry Monsters is a cute counting book but in my book it is confusing to an early counter as I would imagine this is aimed at since it counts to ten. Cute rhyming but they skip 7 and go from 8 to 6 for the sake of a rhyme and at the cost of possibly a parents hard training (that 7 is in there too) maybe undone. I say this because my daughter struggled with remember 7 and 9 for a while and a book that skips any number is not high on my list of reads because it is not reinforcing what I am teaching. If your children know their numbers then this might be a fun book for them to learn to read on.
