Full description for Counting Book
First there is an empty field. Then it is January, the 1st month of the year. All alone in the snow strands 1 yellow house. In front, 1 child builds a snowman. Behind the house is 1 tree and 1 black crow. Now, five months later, it is June. There are 6 buildings in the field, 6 children playing, and 6 adults working. One adult tends 6 ducks. Another drives a train with 6 cars. From 1 to 12, through the months of the year, the town grows. More houses and trees and animals and people can be seen - until finally December arrives with all its wintery magic.
