1. While reading the book, emphasize the number and the corresponding objects. Say the number, have your little one(s) repeat the number, and count the objects together. You can also practice counting in a different language together.
2. While you are counting, point to each object one-at-a-time. Say the number and point to the corresponding number.
3. Also, practice counting backwards (10, 9, 8…) with your little one(s).
4. Make sure you use the conversation starters at the end of the book, as well.
