Countablock

Board Books

Following on the heels of the successful alphabetic phenomenon, Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each number, creating a sort of peek-through guessing game around the number form itself. One egg becomes...one chick!

 

From snowmen to puddles and acorns to oaks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their "transformations." As children interact with the pages, they will familiarise themselves not only with the numbers 1-100 and associated quantities, but with each numeral's physicality -- angles, holes and curves, both front and back.

 

Illustrated by hip British design team Peskimo, this fresh take on the 1-2-3s encourages readers to manipulate numbers in a whole new way.

"The clever, nostalgic art is reminiscent of Sara Gillingham s work in Stephen Krensky s I Know a Lot, and the title provides an unusual exploration of concepts appropriate for many age levels."--Sarah Westeren, Richland Library, Columbia, SC"School Library Journal" (09/01/2014)"
