by William Bee

Visit the Stanley Fan Page

It’s another busy day for Stanley and friends as they plan a party and learn to count!

“Simple line drawings, bright colors, and engaging animal characters make learning to count good fun in this charming board book.” ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

Stanley and Little Woo are planning a party. Help them count the items they need for their guests.

Each page in this cheerful board book by William Bee features everyone’s favorite hard-working hamster Stanley and his buddy Little Woo as they learn numbers and gather the food, drinks, and décor that they’ll need for their festivities—“Stanley has one Jell-O salad,” “Stanley and Little Woo hang seven party flags.” All of the steps add up to a merry ending with friends! Number concepts are introduced within the context of a fun, simple story, which adds to its appeal.

Toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins’ Maisy will love this sturdy board book series. It’s a great stepping-stone to William Bee’s beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
