Eric Carle's very first picture book, entitled 1, 2, 3, to the Zoo: A Counting Book, includes a ride on a train to the zoo. It is colorful and fun and provides great opportunities for explorations in numbers, counting, and sets. Adding to the fun is a spread at the back of the book featuring the whole train full of animals.
