Read full description of the books The Water Hole Board Book:Graeme Base’s fun, bestselling environmental counting book is now an innovative board book!
Children will love counting from one to ten as animals of the world gather around a water hole. As one rhino gives way to two tigers, then three toucans, and so on, up to ten kangaroos, die-cut pages reveal the water hole in ten different worldwide habitats, from the African plains to the Himalaya mountains to the Australian Outback. But the water hole keeps shrinking, and with it the number of frolicking frogs. Can anything bring back the water that the animals all need to survive? Careful readers will find additional animals, many of them endangered, silhouetted in the borders of every spread and hiding within every landscape.
A stunning fusion of counting book, puzzle book, and storybook, The Water Hole Board Book features the layers of interest that make Graeme Base’s books among the world’s best-loved picture books. In the board book format, it will reach even more new readers.
