Here's a rhymed counting book (written and illustrated by Teagan White), with one verse per number, and each verse leading into the next. Beside the verse, on each two page spread, is a picture of the same number of barefoot critters.

Poetry takes us from one to twelve. For example, 'After skinned knees and sunburns what sounds like more fun / Than an afternoon swim to cool off from the sun? / Ten swimmers take turns in a pond fit for seven / Till our crowd moves along to make room for ...' Yep, eleven!

The days ends with the number down to one again, preparing for bed. Counting with Barefoot Critters is a nice change from the usual counting picture book.
