Whichever end you start at is only the beginning!This innovative book is two books in one! First, learn the alphabet, then turn the book over and count from 1 to 99 using combinations of coins.

Tana Hoban's photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in galleries around the world. She has won many gold medals and prizes for her work as a photographer and filmmaker. Her books for children are known and loved throughout the world.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3 Hoban's clever design, providing two books in one, is highlighted with clear, bright photographs. In the alphabet half of the book, each upper- and lower-case ``soft touch'' letter in primary colors (two per page), is matched to a photo of an object. Interesting and challenging choices are presented to enhance vocabulary development of preschoolers. At ``Z,'' readers need to turn the book around for the counting half. Here ``soft touch'' numbers are used. The count proceeds in sequential order to 30, by 5's to 50, and by 10's to 90. An exciting feature of 99 Cents is the concept of monetary equivalency grouping which is introduced at number 5 and continues with increasing complexity. Teachers and parents can extend counting and grouping activities by creating additional coin combinations. Children will enjoy manipulating money, numbers, and letters to correspond to the photographs in this book. The combination of unique design, distinguished photographs, and superb layout adds up to a winner! Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Pub . Lib . , Idaho
