Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Most of us don't remember our toddler days, but learning to count is fun, especially if this digital tutorial is coupled with other memorable things. In this aptly titled "cool counting book," author Puck and artist Kevin Somers use San Francisco attractions, from fortune cookies to cable cars to the Golden Gate Bridge, to teach numbers that will remain meaningful long after preschool graduation.
Cool Counting Books
These may be the coolest counting books ever. Simply illustrated with graphic images, you can count along to 10 with the icons of famous cities, states, and the country.
