Stanley's Numbers and Stanley's Opposites by williambee: Book Review

Books received at no charge to facilitate review.

Stanley and Little Woo have their five party hats and two cakes ready for their picnic. They will need picnic rugs to sit on and balloons and party flags for decorations. As for the food, how much milk and cheese will they need for all of their friends and just how many friends will attend the picnic?

Bright colors and simple lines will grab the attention of fidgety toddlers but the real fun is the chance to count along with Stanley and Little Woo. When at last the friends are gathered for their picnic, the page explodes with lots of fun things to count. Not only do Stanley and Woo know how to put on a picnic, they also know how to score, one, two, three, four, five... yes five stars for their book.
5 hurrahs for Stanley and Woo.

Stanley and his friends don't stop with a picnic. First Stanley sleeps and then awakens. The fun starts when Little Woo gets in the water and Stanley stays out. Then it's off to the lake in canoes where Stanley sports a long canoe while Little Woo sticks with a short one. They even try their hands at building a snowman. Can you guess who will build the big one and who will build the small?

Once again, simple illustrations with vibrant colors attract attention while adorable characters make learning irresistible. A great companion to Stanley's Numbers. The sturdy board books will hold up to repeat reading requests from snuggly early readers.
