Annie Aardvark, Mathematician by Suzie Olsen is a fun, educational children's book about a young aardvark named Annie. Annie loves everything about math, like counting, adding, and subtracting. Annie decides that today, as she forages, she will count everything she finds. Annie hopes to get all the way to ten of something before the day is over. She finds one aardvark cucumber, two rocks, three beetles, four sticks, five berries, six termites, seven beautiful flowers, eight blades of grass, and nine leaves. But Annie's goal is to find ten of something, and ten is a big number. Will Annie be able to find ten of something?

I really enjoyed reading Annie Aardvark, Mathematician by Suzie Olsen. The book is very well written and descriptive. It's a great way to teach children how to count to ten, and the book is great fun. The characters are very likeable, because Annie is very smart and determined. I like the use of onomatopoeia (a word which imitates the natural sounds of a thing), and so will the reader, because it makes the book really fun to read. The pictures by Davina Kinney are very beautifully drawn, and help to depict each scene. The pictures are also very colourful, and the pictures of Annie are adorable. Parents will enjoy reading this book to their child, and will like the fact that the book is both fun and educational. Children will enjoy reading this book and learning how to count. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers.
