Overview

From children's book superstar DAVID CARTER:
100 surprises are in this book, just waiting for kids to sneak a look!

Flaps upon flaps upon flaps—100 of them—are layered on top of each other like gift boxes filled with surprises. Acclaimed master paper engineer and illustrator David Carter offers children a magical experience as they uncover an array of 100 wonderful things in a variety of landscapes. From zippy city streets—where successive flaps open to show a truck, taxi, bicycle, scooter, and skateboarder—to scenes deep undersea, in the forest, and in a prehistoric world with dinosaurs, this clever, visually astonishing book will amaze kids…and teach them to count up to 100 too!

Children will echo a certain Sesame Street character's "I love to count!" after lifting 100 numbered flaps to see as many different cartoon figures. Changing settings from spread to spread, Carter begins with an undersea scene followed by gatherings of cars and trucks, garden veggies, dinosaurs, desserts and so on. Each page features five shaped, stacked flaps of decreasing size and varying orientation, with the largest always on top--and each flap features a simply drawn, brightly colored item or animal with an identifying label and a number. A city bus (labeled number 11) lifts to reveal a fire truck (12), which conceals an ambulance (13), which covers a "doggy rickshaw" (14), under which a "city worker" (15) emerges from a manhole (here, a doghole). Lifting the fifth and smallest flap in every stack reveals a congratulatory message: "Now you've counted to [number]!" Rather than concluding with a flourish, the final "Now you've counted to 100!" looks like its predecessors and seems anticlimactic. Still, even very young children with rudimentary counting skills will be drawn on by the stream of visual surprises and will feel a proper sense of accomplishment when they reach the end. A flap lifter's delight and a sure promoter of early numeracy. Count on repeat visits. (Novelty counting book. 1-2)
