My favorite Christmas gift to give this year! This book tells the story of a boy's interest in numbers with a delightful and creative approach. I recently read this book to a large group of children and their parents at our school book fair and was amazed at the attention level of both the children and the adults listening. The book is beautiful illustrated and very clever, and made my children want to go find things to count! It takes a big number and makes it a series of adventures for an inventive little boy. This book will help engage your child's interest in math, counting, and problem solving. A must have for young families!
