C is for Counting Books

Counting books are fun for kids as they learn how to rote count. My personal favorites are the ones that teach you how to count in a foreign language. I love learning foreign languages. And the sooner you start teaching kids words in different languages, the easier it is for them to learn them. I was fortunate to learn both French and Spanish when I was in Montessori school, focusing on French in elementary school. I can see how this foundation helped me in my later studies of other languages.

I have used these books with kids in my classes, as well as for my own personal studying. They are great for cultural lessons, too!

  1. These are awesome! We're raising our little girl in a trilingual environment, with each one of us speaking one language to her (OPOL). These are right up our alley and so helpful since I have a hard time finding bilingual books in Portuguese/English. Thank you SO much for bringing these up.
