KidLitPicks Book Club  November theme: Counting Up and Counting Down Chosen by: @bookbairn To be featured, tag #kidlitpicks_123 Mods: @readingisourthing @spiky_penelope

FESTIVE FEATURE 🦃 from @weeblewobblewonder. Thanks for tagging #kidlitpicks_123
.

We are officially on vacation and just five days away from Thanksgiving here in America. It is time to count down with "Five Silly Turkeys." #gobblegobble My youngest can't get enough of its crinkly feathers.
.

We are thankful for you, lovely book lovers, for following along and joining in with our monthly shares. Have a wonderful weekend!

FEATURE ✨ We only have 5 little fingers and 10 little toes in this shot but it was the best I could get. I’m always thinking of ways to incorporate counting in the activities my daughter and I do together and in the books we read. Numbers and opportunities for counting are everywhere you look. Books make it easy to incorporate them into your routine. As we continue to learn about our different body parts (at the moment we're especially interested in our ears and noses and how fingers fit so nicely in them 😳😂) we're loving TEN LITTLE FINGERS AND TEN LITTLE TOES by Mem Fox.
.

Just last night as I read the line 'and both of these babies as every knows had ten little fingers...', my daughter put her hands out in front of her face and wiggled her fingers and smiled. We have been counting the fingers and toes in the book every night for ages and it's just clicked! This book is so great for practicing counting, as every other page has fingers and toes to count up to ten or twenty. If your child has mastered counting to ten or twenty forwards, why not try counting backwards? I love books like this that make learning new skills easily accessible and engaging for little ones. Plus the story ends with three little super adorable kisses on the tip of the baby's nose. This book is on my must have list.
.

This month over @kidlitpicks the theme is Counting Up and Counting Down. Share a favourite counting book and tag #kidlitpicks_123 for a chance to be featured. Thanks, @petitbookcorner for this precious share.

FEATURE ✨ "Come for a walk up Numerical Street." with @booksandbabycinos
.

This month's theme for @kidlitpicks is COUNTING UP AND COUNTING DOWN. Well, this really is the perfect theme for us right now and I found the perfect book to share too. A few months ago, my son surprised me by suddenly recognizing numerals from 0-12. As far as I knew he didn't know any at all and, as I wasn't in the habit of pointing them out, I had no idea where he'd learnt them. It turned out that his dad had been teaching him the numbers on the houses on their morning walks with the dog.
.

Oddly enough, Numerical Street follows the journey of a boy and his dog wandering along the street too. They pass the retro shops along the way. There are items to count and numbers to spot at the butcher, the hair salon and the coin-operated laundry. It's quintessentially Australian and nostalgic through the architecture and details in the story, such as the myna birds throughout and the lamingtons/caramel slice/jam rolls and custard tarts at the bakery. .

As my son and I walk along our street, it amuses me how excited he is to spot the numbers on the houses. He counts everything and comes up with some very cute results. “Here comes the end of NUMERICAL STREET. Banksias droop in the late summer heat...Just beyond twelve waits a welcoming gnome. We started at one, counting all the way... home.”
.

Thank you @bookbairn for choosing this theme. Once again, I've been nudged to seek out books I wouldn't normally look for. Being a part of @kidlitpicks has meant that the books on our shelf have become more diverse.

FEATURE ✨ “As beautiful as it is clever.” 365 Penguins, recommended by @alittlebookhabit
.

This month's theme over at @kidlitpicks is counting up and counting down as suggested by @bookbairn (who you should definitely be following if you aren't already). My book of choice is the wonderful 365 Penguins, which is as beautiful as it is clever.
.

It basically follows the story of a family who mysteriously receive a penguin through the post everyday for a year. It cleverly weaves in a lot of maths and as the numbers get larger the mathematical concepts get more sophisticated so that this truly can be enjoyed by children of a wide age range. Think counting, arrays, weight, money, time, addition, subtraction—it really is endless. But, as with all the best learning opportunities, it's done in such a clever way that children will barely notice that they are learning. Add to that the fact that it is a beautiful, stylish work of art and I'm sure you'll be itching to get your hands on it.

FEATURE ✨ One Family is @kidlitcrafts’ choice for this month’s @kidlitpicks theme, Counting Up and Counting Down.
.

This book works on so many levels: it’s a simple counting story, a little bit of seek and find, and (my favorite!) a lovely introduction to and celebration of diversity in families. When we first posted about this book last winter, we used craft sticks, markers, and crayons to create our own families while talking about the ways families can be different. My then five-year-old concluded, “Just because things look different doesn’t mean they’re not the same on the inside.” So thankful to have stories like this one to get our discussions rolling!

Our November theme, Counting Up and Counting Down, chosen and introduced by @bookbairn
.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… We are fast-approaching the season of the countdown. Children are getting more and more excited counting down the days, lighting candles, opening advent calendars of all shapes and sizes—we will be having a book-a-day for our advent season. Parents are getting more and more frantic to get organised as the days disappear. It’s the time of year that everyone practises counting.
.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10… A study several years ago by researchers from the Institute of Education in London found that children who receive bedtime stories from their parents as infants perform better in vocabulary and spelling but also in maths. Reading supports numeracy. Books are full of numbers and images for counting.
