"The buggy-eyed insects, crabs, and snails provide an appealing cast of characters who stand up to be counted against a summertime palette." - Kirkus Reviews

If one is a snail and two is a person, we must be counting by feet! Just follow the sign to the beach, where a bunch of fun-loving crabs, lounging dogs, gleeful insects, and bewildered-looking snails obligingly offer their feet for counting in a number of silly, surprising combinations from one to one hundred!

    Comments about One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab:

    Great book, all you have to do is google it to find out lesson ideas. Great having it as a big book-made it easier for students to engage with the text, I used it for skip counting but could be use for addition, counting on, doubles or multiplication.
