What a simple but fantastic number counting book for children. The illustrations build as you go through the story. The book starts with zero, which is such a tricky concept to understand for small children. The snowy scene then builds and changes as you go through the numbers 0-12.Along the side of the illustrations you see a base ten frame that add a unfix cube with each new number. Then when you go past 10 a new set of cubes starts along side the ten. I love the mathematical connection for students and children will love counting the sets of each number that they find on each new page. Students will also enjoy this as a wordless picture book, and they can tell a story about the changing seasons and the people and animals you see depicted on the pages.… (more)

This is an really interesting book wich my sister got when the local library was cleaning among their shelves when we were in our early teens.

A book with only pictures yes but as you follow the journey you notice all these funny and strange little details. Like for example on one spread a family is moving and some pages further ahead they have arrived at their new home.

Its magic cant really be fully explained unless youve read it yourself.
