If you're looking for books that help little ones learn the basics, look no further than this great collection of ABC & 123 books from Barefoot!

We All Went on Safari - A Counting Journey Through Tanzania is a favorite at our house, long after we've mastered the art of counting to 10!  And there's so much more to learn in the end notes of this book, including how to count to 10 in Swahili plus facts about the Masai people and the animals featured in the book.

Bonus - We All Went on Safari is also available in Spanish so you can learn to count to 10 in that language too!

My Granny Went to Market - A Round-the-World Counting Rhyme is a close second on our favorite list.  Granny collects such beautiful and unique items on her magic carpet ride around the world, and this book is so much fun to read out loud!

Another bonus - learn to count to 10 in Spanish with Abuelita Fue Mercado!

Cleo's Counting Book

Cleo's Alphabet Book
Cleo the Cat is so sweet and gentle, learning your ABCs and 123s with her will be so simple!  Bright colors, simple text, and Cleo's great personality make these book perfect for preschoolers.

One Moose, Twenty Mice
Zoe and her Zebra

Clare Beaton creates amazing images with fabric, buttons, sequins, lace, and all sort of other materials, so it's no surprise that two of her creations make the list of great ABC and 123 books!  I especially love how diverse the kids in Zoe and her Zebra are.
