One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab

By April Pulley Sayre, Jeffrey Sayre
Illustrated by Randy Cecil

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.

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!

  • Introduces counting and adding in a fun and welcoming way
  • Randy Cecil's colorful paintings add humor and energy
  • An American Library Association Notable Children s Book and a Bulletin of the Center for Children s Books Blue Ribbon Award Winner
