This Mem Fox buy-in from Simon and Schuster has a wonderful, rollicking, rhyming text reminiscent of WHERE IS THE GREEN SHEEP? And just like the super successful Green Sheep, early readers will be memorising the simple text - as well as honing their numeracy skills with all the crazy goats to count!

Comments about Let's Count Goats!:
I read it with my two and a half year old Granddaughter.
The illustrations intrigue her as there is so much to find on each page. She laughs and is beginning to count the goats and wants me to read this book several times.
I cannot see anything that is not great about this book.
