A companion to the popular ‘Alphablock’, a beautifully unique way to experience counting – with pages shaped as each number form.

ISBN: 9781419713743 Author: Tester, Franceschelli Publisher: Abrams Appleseed Publication Date: 1st September 2014 Imprint: Abrams Appleseed Cover: Other Dewey: 513.211 (edition:23) Pages: 94 Language: English Readership: Children - juvenile / Code: J Category: Subjects: ,
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.
