Bush Mob Counting

Author: Helen Milroy

Publisher: Magabala Books

Published: 2022

Readers of the ‘Tales from the Bush Mob’ books will recognise Helen Milroy’s colourful patterns and bright illustrations featuring the animal characters from the series. Dingo greets us at the start of this rhyming board book, inviting readers to count all the animal friends, see what they’re up to, and to notice the time of day. Every double page spread leads us through the numbers from one to ten. On the way we meet a sleepy baby quoll, magpies, kangaroos, wombats, dingoes, bats, possums, and willy wagtails. The animals are shown engaging in typical activities for the time of day – morning, noon, daytime and night. Bush Mob Counting is a fun introduction to numbers and Australian animals, and is sure to become a firm favourite with babies and toddlers.
