This is a basic counting book, but it also introduces counting by 10’s.  You can also use it to review sizes, colors, shapes, and greater/less.

We used this book to review adding 10.  We had a worksheet that had several rows that required adding 10.  It started with counting by 10’s to 100.  The second row started with 3 and 10 was added to each number in the row until we got to 103.  The next row started with a different number and required the same adding of 10.  You could do this on a blank sheet of paper giving your own starting number for each row.
