Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"The shapes of numbers are hidden in this companion to Arlene Alda's ABC, and the second half counts down, with images that find formal beauty in ordinary things," noted PW. Ages 3-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
This hardcover alphabet book by author/photographer Arlene Alda encourages children-and grownups-to search for the unexpected in the seemingly ordinary. It's a highly imaginative approach to a perennial topic, utilizing full color photographs of commonplace objects, such as split bagels or a scissors handle, in which the shape of a number can be envisioned. Each page is anchored with a lineup of the numbers 1 to 10, with the featured number highlighted using bold, oversized type. In this way, young readers can learn the number itself as well as its place within the unit of 10. A great teaching tool for classroom or home.
