What do people think of 1, 2, 3 with Nephi and Me?

Funny you should ask. As it happens, we're nearly at the end of a blog tour for this book! That means I can bring you lots of completely unbiased opinions in addition to my completely biased opinion. :)

Here's what a few reviewers have said so far. (Click on their blogs for a full review.)

From Reidhead Randomness:
Board books are the BEST for wiggly little kids in Sacrament meetings!  This new book; 1,2,3 with Nephi and Me! will be your newest favorite, 'go-to' book!  The pictures are so fun as you count from 1 Liahona to 10 Jaredite kings.  The scripture references are included for each story referenced, so this book would be good for many ages.  I would love to use this in a sharing time or Family Home Evening....Read the book to the Junior Primary, and have the Senior Primary look up each reference!  That way, it is adaptable to many ages.  The illustrations are darling!  Being a board book, it will stand up to the worst chewing, drooling, and just plain enjoying.
From Inklings and Notions:
From the first time we opened this book, my toddler decided this is her new favorite book. Not only is it a fun, lyrical book that teaches counting, it also backs each number up with a verse out of the Book of Mormon. 
The illustrations are adorable! This is a new favorite at our home.
 From Little Red Reads:
This board book has been traveling in our church bag for the past three weeks and all of our children loved it. With ryhming text, vibrant illustrations and scriptural references on each page, it is a great way to teach the gospel. I love the sturdy board book format. Five thumbs up from five little readers.
From The Hand that Rocks the Cradle:
Smiles*This book was very well thought out. It was not overly simple or predictable. I even learned some new things! *Each number representation comes with scripture references for further learning and connection to the Book of Mormon.*It uses rhyming. *The illustrations are colorful and appealing.*I like the matte finish on the inside pages. 
And finally, from Wishful Endings:
1, 2, 3 with Nephi and Me! was a really cute read. All my kids enjoyed the rhyming as well as the illustrations. I liked that for some of the numbered items there was actually a list of what those items were. Some of them were pretty creative as well. For this type of book and the age it targets, I thought it was pretty much spot on with its simplicity. It's definitely a book we'll be keeping on our shelves. 

There's one last stop on the blog tour, but it won't be posted for another couple of days. In the meantime, if you've read the book and enjoyed it, you can help spread the word! I would really appreciate any reviews or feedback you want to leave online.

It shouldn't take too long for you to review, and you really have no idea how much it helps.
