David Carter's Lift the Flaps and Learn to Count! Blog Book Tour

When my kids were growing up some of their favorite books were David Carter's lift the flap bug books so I was super excited to hear about David's newest book 100 Lift the Flaps and Learn to Count! and to be asked to participate in the Sterling Kids blog book tour to promote it.

I know a lot of you have already celebrated the 100th day of school but if not this is the perfect book for the day. It is also a great addition to a study of numbers, counting by 10's, and number patterns. 

Here is a little more about David Carter and his book Lift the Flaps and Learn to Count! You can purchase a copy of the book here

Lift the Flaps and Learn to Count!
By David Carter

Flaps upon flaps upon flaps—100 of them—are layered on top of each other like gift boxes filled with surprises!  Acclaimed master paper engineer and illustrator David Carter offers children a magical experience as they uncover an array of 100 wonderful things in a treasure trove of landscapes. From bustling city streets—where successive flaps open to show a truck, taxi, bicycle, scooter, and skateboarder; to scenes deep undersea displaying coral jellyfish and sea urchins; to in the forest with a bear, raccoon, wolf, and porcupine; to a prehistoric world with dinosaurs like a raptor and stegosaurus, this clever, visually astonishing book will not only amaze kids, but teach them to count up to 100 too!
