This is not just another counting book.
In this book you must look carefully at the pictures. You must count. And count again.
This is a counting book with a difference.
What is the difference? The difference is what is left over when you subtract one group from another group.
Why else is this a counting book with a difference?
Because besides counting, you must read and look and think, too. Because there are many things to discover and puzzle out. Because this book is fun!

PreS-K. This attractive math-concept book adds addition and subtraction to a basic counting exercise. Each double-page spread features a striking scene drawn from a child's world--a plate of apples and oranges, kids and parents waiting at a bus stop, and so on. In a set of rhythmic, repetitious questions, the text instructs children to identify how many of two different types of objects are pictured (pens and pencils, for example) and then determine how much larger one group is than another: "How many pencils were there? How many pens were there? How many more pencils than pens were there?" The clear, simple presentation, greatly enhanced by Crews' lovely gouache images, turns the math concepts into puzzles that kids will want to solve, and a closing spread of a city skyline, black against a sky filled with stars ("too many to count!"), makes this a fine choice for winding down at bedtime.
