What a clever and darling book! I thought it would be about math problems, but it's really a sneaky alphabet book that shows children 26 different ways about how they are seeing and using numbers every day. The kid-fun illustrations by Vicky Enright contain more numbers for your kids to find. The authors wrote this book to teach children just how important numbers are in their lives. I give this book a high five for fun while learning, and for challenging kids to come up with thoughts and ideas on more ways they use numbers daily. This team of fun authors and illustrator has two companion books out ¿ 'Read Anything Good Lately?' and 'Written Anything Good Lately?' I laughed out loud when I saw the illustration on Page 18 for 'O' Is For 'Order Number'. The mother and daughter in the illustration are holding a copy of 'Read Anything Good Lately?' while ordering 'Written Anything Good Lately?' on their computer screen. Hmmm, sneaky alphabet book AND a sneaky marketing trick as well, ladies! And it worked! I now must read your entire clever series. Congratulations on a book well done.
