One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab
A Counting by Feet Book

authors: April Pulley Sayre; Jeffrey Sayre
illustrator: Randy Cecil

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!

What do one hundred sunbathing snails have in common with ten crabs in inner tubes? Check out this mirthful counting book with a focus on feet.
