1, 2, Buckle My Shoe by Anna Grossnickle Hines

I recommend this book for: preschool

The traditional rhyme is illustrated by gorgeous quilted illustrations. Each panel with a number features both the arabic form and the corresponding number of buttons, and the details and colors of the picture panels are gorgeous and add interest. The last page is a double spread featuring the numbers and colorful hands with buttons on the fingers to represent the numbers.  The rhyme would be great for sharing with a group, and the pictures make this a great one to share one on one.  
Simple and fun!
