Beautiful drawings! This book is a fun way to get children engaged with numbers and counting.

It is a book illustrations help much to compression of the concept to be taught to students. Besides the illustrations are brilliant though they are in black and white. Helps young students in solving problems in the right orrganizacion when account numbers.

Captivating and rich art work done in black pen and ink on white. A powerful message is delivered in a whimsical tale that delights young and old. Not only a counting book, but also inventive in its illustrations and themes. ( )

Really creative counting book! I love all the complicated ways the birds try to get themselves across the bridge. It would be fun to read aloud to a class, as I think they would get such a kick out of these silly birds! I also love how they present the numbers, being made out of materials from their environment. What a fun way to learn numbers.

I love that this book is a counting book but it also has an awesome, humorous story line!! While the birds try to find a way to cross the bridge in complicated ways, there is one birds that simply walks across the bridge!! The drawings are also very beautiful and detailed.

Book description
A clever counting book and fable unlike any other and winner of the 2011 Governor General's Award for Illustration. Ten birds are trying to figure out how to get to the other side of the river. The bird they call "Brilliant" devises a pair of stilts. The bird they call "Highly Satisfactory" engineers a raft. One by one, nine resourceful birds make the crossing until a single bird is left behind - the one they call "Needs Improvement." This bird's solution proves surprising, and absurdly simple.
