This counting book has the reader counting familiar objects such as balloons, baskets, and candles. For each number, 1-10, the numeral is given, illustrations of the correct number of objects are given, and the illustration is written out in words. The famous characters from the Winnie-the-Pooh books also make cameo appearances.
The illustrations are fairly simple colored sketches of the objects and characters, and they match the very simple text. For me, the only confusion came in the first two pages. On page one, the text read "one ballon", there was an illustration of one balloon, the numeral for one was given, and there was an illustration of Tigger. On page two, the text read "two umbrellas", there were illustrations of two umbrellas, the numeral for two was given, and there were illustrations of Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin. Because they were all on the same page, I began to associate the number of characters with the numeral as well. However, for the remaining pages, the text and text illustrations are given on the left page and the numeral and one or two characters are on the right page. I think that this style is clearer and do not understand why it was different for the first two numbers.
This is a board book edition of the story. It is durable and age-appropriate for infants and toddlers as a first-concept book.
