A couple of pages have full page drawings with a dotted path showing you where Three has travelled as he explores the streets. Your kids will love to trace the line to follow where Three has gone.

Three finds a spider.

There is a fun pattern woven through the book of referring to the number of legs things have. Three meets a six-legged creature, an eight-legged creature, a one-legged creature and even a twelve-legged creature.

I bought this book as a promotional giveaway. I browsed through some books in the bookshop and couldn’t put this one back. When I got home, my son saw it and I told him that I bought it to give to someone else. He convinced me to read it to him once. After we read it together, I knew the giveaway would never happen. He loved it.

This was definitely one of my favourite books for this year!
