Ocean Counting Odd Numbers - A Fun Reading, Math + Science Book




Ocean Counting Odd Numbers by Jerry Pallotta is a very cool book!

Children will enjoy learning about LOTS of different ocean animals while counting and naming all the odd numbers from 1 to 49.  What a great way to combine reading, math, and science!  Kids will have fun learning about some very interesting, beautiful, and "odd" ocean animals.




Aren't these illustrations by Shennen Bersani wonderful and so interesting?

As a follow up to reading the story, children could create some of the ocean animals in the book or review odd (and even) numbers.

Here's some links to some of my earlier posts to give you some ideas.

  3. Hi Marcia! I just came across your post. Thank you for mentioning the book! It was a delight illustrating it! Jerry helped me find most of the sea creatures I illustrated. How cool is that!

    I hope you can check out some of the other books I have illustrated - Jerry and I have a new butterfly book coming out in the spring (2013)! Hope you'll like that one, too!
