Math Fables Too -- Making Science Count ... by Greg Tang
"A follow-up to Math Fables, Greg Tang adds science to the mix as he challenges the youngest math learners--kids ages 3-6--to think about numbers in more creative ways. His charming animal fables will speak an interest in science while giving children a head start in math that will last a lifetime."
Here's the fable from the book for the number one:
Special Delivery
Among the blades of ocean grass,
1 sea horse swims alone.
His pouch is full of babies that
he's proud to call his own.

This pregnant dad's in fact a fish
blessed with a rare physique.
He's happy to be different--
it makes him more unique!
