BeachHouse Publishing's newest board book will build up a hearty appetite for reading and counting!

The colorful, die-cut counting book pays homage to one of Hawai'i's staple dishes for generations--saimin--which continues to be a favorite treat for kids of all ages.

Starting with one egg, two kamaboko (fish cake), and three onions, kids can count each ingredient from one to ten in English and Hawaiian and watch the bowl of saimin grow yummier and yummier.
