Description

Following on the heels of the successful alphabetic phenomenon, Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each number, creating a sort of peek-through guessing game around the number form itself. One egg becomes...one chick!





From snowmen to puddles and acorns to oaks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their "transformations." As children interact with the pages, they will familiarise 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.





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.

Review quote

"Stylish silkscreenlike illustrations and opportunities for both counting and guessing what happens next should keep copies of this chunky book well-loved."--Publishers' Weekly (08/11/2014) "A terrific companion to Alphablock that counts from one to 10, and up by 10s to 100, using cause and effect."
"More please!"
--Jennifer M. Brown"Shelf Awareness" (08/19/2014) "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."--Sarah Westeren, Richland Library, Columbia, SC"School Library Journal" (09/01/2014)
