Olly and Me 1-2-3! by Shirley Hughes, ages 2-6
English author Shirley Hughes is at it again with her newest picture book, Olly and Me 1-2-3! The author of over 50 books, Shirley Hughes continues to grow in her renown both at home in England and overseas.
Olly and me 1-2-3 teaches kids about counting from 1-10 through everyday activities. “Two things often go together in pairs, like shoes and socks…” Her unforgettable illustrations are sweet and simple, bringing a sense of sincerity to the pages. Children with siblings will have fun journeying through the day with this brother & sister pair!
I’m a big Shirley Hughes fan myself, and I recommend exploring some of her older works: Dogger, an all-time favorite, and The Big Alfie and Annie Rose Storybook both tell the tales of ordinary children and their daily adventures in a way that will melt your heart and never leave you. 🙂
Add these timeless classics to your library today!
