Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
Children will enjoy finding the additions to each picture in this clever educational book. Twelve two-page spreads illustrate months of the year, time of day, the four seasons, and a wordless story about a gradually growing town. The first number, zero is depicted by an empty snow-covered landscape. each page introduces a new numeral with the corresponding number of people, animals, and objects added to the scene.
Time Magazine
The best alphabet book of the year.
American Library Association Booklist
A clean, subtle ABC worth the long look that will idelibly imprint each letter.
New York Times
One of the few truly intelligent counting books ever produced-and a work of art besides.

I read this book as a child and remember it with a great fondness. I searched for it everywhere for my daughter and finally found it. I now have to but another copy because we have worn the other one out. A book that will never lose its class.

Anno's beautiful watercolors tell many tales as it leads children to number concepts. Each country scene depicts a number within the scene (one house, one tree, one cow; two houses, two trees, etc)as the seasons move through the year. It lends itself well to making up stories, counting, number recognition, and color identification. But the real charm of this book is that each page is a new story and children will want to keep the book for the memories it holds from their childhood.
