The Water Hole

Written by: Graeme Base

First line: Down to the secret water hole the animals all come.

Why you should read this book: Children adore this beautiful animal themed counting book, which features cutout pages, gorgeously painted animals of all shapes, sizes, and continental origin, and a naturalist story about seasonal rains. Kids will want to count along as the the water hole shrinks and the number of animals in need increases. Includes short informational blurbs about the featured animals at the end.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're really thirsty.
