"Every Buddy Counts" is a great little book about teaching kids how to count! The book shows how to count from 1 to 10. It is about a little girl who wakes up and is feeling sad, but when she is feeling sad; she counts all her little buddies. 1 being her little hamster, 2 being her older sisters who play trumpet in a band, 3 being her cousin's kittens, and so on. This book is appropriate for the Kindergarten level. I would use this book in the classroom to teach students about how to count to 10 and how each number can be visually represented. As an extension activity, I could cover up all of the numbers in the book and let the students only see the pictures so that they can count, as opposed to just seeing the number.
