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.
