Editorial Reviews

"One of the few truly intelligent counting books ever produced-and a work of art besides. Anno’s village is alive in his lovely watercolor paintings, and every child will be subtly, irresistibly pulled in, counting trees and trucks, flowers and fish, ducks and diapers."-- The New York Times"An excellent introduction to number systems and a beautiful wordless picture book as well. A counting book that’s numero uno.-- School Library Journal
