Description

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.

'An excellent introduction to number systems that is a beautiful wordless picture book as well. . . Over the course of a year (each picture represents a different month and time of day) a little town grows up with viewers witnessing the building of bridges, streets, and railroads. . . . Extraordinary lovely art work.' 'SLJ.
