Summary
Max and Josephine plant one watermelon seed, two pumpkins, three eggplants, four peppers, five tomatoes, six blueberry bushes, seven strawberry plants, eight beans, nine potatoes, and ten corn seeds in their garden
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Here's a wonderfully innovative book for children who are just learning to count. As we watch Max and Josephine tend their garden, there are ample opportunities to count--from 1 to 10 as the garden is planted and from 10 to 100 (in tens) while the garden is being harvested. And there's more to count than plants. Bees, ants, worms, butterflies, and other animals also adorn the pages, and children will want to count them too. Bold, colorful illustrations by Karen Patkau accompany Celia Barker Lottridge's direct text. Not only is the book good arithmetic fun, it also offers a fascinating introduction to gardening as well.
