Abigail loves to count, but all the things she tries to count keep moving! Her friends try to help her but unfortunately they aren't very good at counting. Abigail teaches her friends how to count the flowers in the field, and when the sun goes down they work together to count 1,267 stars in the sky. 
This book provides children with an opportunity to consider accurate methods of counting. What would they say to help Zebra and Cheetah learn how to count the ten flowers accurately? And why does it make it more difficult if the things you're trying to count keep moving around?
