RRP $19.95

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.

    Mem Fox

    Mem Fox was born in Australia, grew up in Africa, studied drama in England, and returned to Adelaide, Australia in 1970, where she has lived with her husband, Malcolm, and daughter Chloë, happily ever after.

    Mem Fox is Australia’s most highly regarded picture-book author. Her first book, Possum Magic, is the best selling children’s book ever in Australia, with sales of over three and a half million. And in the USA Time for Bed and Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge have each sold over a million copies. Time for Bed is on Oprah’s list of the twenty best children’s books of all time.

    Mem has written over thirty picture books for children and five non-fiction books for adults, including the best-selling Reading Magic, aimed at parents of very young children. Her most recent book Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes beautifully illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, was on the New York Times bestseller lists for 16 weeks in 2008/2009.

    Mem Fox was an Associate Professor in Literacy Studies at Flinders University in Adelaide (Australia), where she taught teachers for twenty four years until her early retirement in 1996. She has received many civic awards, honours and accolades in Australia, including two honorary doctorates. She has visited the United States over one hundred times, mostly in her role as a literacy expert although she is also a well-known author in America. She is an influential international consultant in literacy, but she pretends to sit around writing full time.
