Countablock

Following on the heels of a successful abecedary, Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each numeral, creating a peek-through guessing game around the number form itself. One acorn becomes . . . one oak tree! From snowmen to puddles and eggs to chicks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their "transformations." As children interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the numbers 1-100 and associated quantities, but with each numeral's physicality-angles, holes, and curves, both front and back. Die-cut numerals include 1-10, and 20-100 by tens. Illustrated by hip British design team Peskimo, this fresh take on the 1-2-3s encourages readers to manipulate numbers in a whole new way.

Note: illustrations are in the style of vintage screen prints, with imperfect variations in color and texture.

Editorial Reviews

"The clever, nostalgic art is reminiscent of Sara Gillingham's work in Stephen Krensky's I Know a Lot, and the title provides an unusual exploration of concepts appropriate for many age levels."
