Count Me a Rhyme
Animal Poems by the Number
by Jane Yolen

Animals in nature can be seen in different groups. Can you count them? If you saw a quartet of snails, how many would you count? If you heard a bird duet, how many birds would be singing? If you saw a septet of turtles on a log, how many turtles would you see? How could you describe more fireflies than you could count?

In Count Me a Rhyme, not only will you learn about animals, and count them in beautiful photographs, but you'll also learn new names for number groups!
