Adventures in Reading: One Spring Lamb

Rebekah's new favorite thing is counting. She wants to count everything. She counts the rocks we find on our walks. She counts her bows. She counted her Easter eggs over and over. She counts her stuffed animals.

She is getting pretty good - never mind that she says 'nine' when she means one! Most of the time she can get from one to ten in a pretty understandable way. It makes my teacher-momma heart so happy to hear her practicing, "nine, two, tee, boor, bive, six, seben, eight, nine, ben. Yeeaaaaay!" is the soundtrack to my life these days! 

Books that have things to count in them are her favorite at the moment, especially our newest book from Tommy Nelson called One Spring Lamb. 

One Spring Lamb by Anne Vittur Kennedy has adorable spring things to count on each page. Rebekah gets to practice counting one to ten on things like flowers, kites, bunnies, and butterflies. Many of the pictures she can identify and the ones she didn't know, she is learning. This book is perfect for 1-3 year olds as it is written in rhyme so it flows well and makes the numbers easier to remember. I personally love that it is an educational book both in the traditional sense but also in the Biblical sense. Like all of our Tommy Nelson books, there is an underlying Biblical message about Easter that is often not found in Easter books that have bunnies and eggs. We will be reading this book over and over for weeks to come! 


  1. What a cute book. II need to find that for our great granddaughters. They are so sweet when they start learning to count.
