What is the front , back cover? What is the spine? What is the Title page?

I can count caterpillars
I can add and subtract pom poms
For children who need more support try subitizing with numbers two and three.
For children who may benefit form extrusion, use more than five.
Use tweezers to grab pom poms for extra fine motors skills.
Students will be able to create a caterpillar using pom poms.
Students will be able to use subtraction and addition to create a new caterpillar.
