123 Moose: A Counting Book - Andrea Helman

Released January 2002

Sasquatch Books

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Although 123 Moose has been out for a number of years this nature based counting book is still in print. Featuring animals and objects found in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, this beautiful collection of color photos introduces youngsters to a wide array of animals and some plants while allowing them to practice their counting skills.

You’ll find a gray wolf pup, moose, cougars, muskoxen, pronghorns, and bears along with a selection of birds that include owls, bald eagles and Bohemian waxwings. The author includes sea otters and sea lions plus scallop shells, duck eggs and some river rocks.

Each entry is accompanied by a short narrative that tells the youngster something about it pictured creature or object. For example, you’ll discover that baby trumpet swans are called “cygnets” and sea lions have very poor eyesight.

You may have to go online or special order it at the local book store but it is worth the extra effort to get a copy of the book.
