Review:
Annie Aardvark is a sweet counting picture book about Annie the Aardvark – children can count along and even act out the sounds/motions that go along with Annie as she counts all of the different things she encounters in her daily life. I love that these items are true to facts when it comes to what aardvarks eat and where they live – this would be a perfect pairing with a non-fiction book about aardvarks, or some simple research into aardvarks. However, Annie is all about counting too, and the focus is on MATH! The book keeps the story light and very listener-friendly for the youngest readers, while also including a deeper author's note in the back about Annie's namesake, Annie Easley, a mathematician, computer programmer and rocket scientist. This would be a great piece to share with older readers who may not need the counting message from Annie the Aardvark!  - Kate Olsen, The Loud Library Lady
