A unique counting book teaches readers how to use American Sign Language to communicate the numbers 1-20, 25, 50, and 100, and complements the text and instructions with beautiful hand-drawn objects, including wind-up toys and butterflies.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Softly realistic colored-pencil drawings on colored backgrounds show children's hands in varying skin colors making the American Sign Language sign for a number, accompanied by a corresponding number of objects, from 1 to 20, plus 25, 50, 75, and 100. Signs that require motion are shown by a lightly drawn hand at the start position, an arrow indicating the movement, and a more solidly drawn hand for the next position. The illustrations depict either toys or objects from nature: 50 fish, 75 beads, and a glorious double-page spread of Noah's Ark for 100. Visually, the book is a delight, with charming pictures to pore over. Although counting books are legion, those that include signs are not. This is a title worth having, particularly because it can be enjoyed by children who aren't familiar with ASL. A fine companion to Rankin's Handmade Alphabet (Dial, 1991).

From Kirkus Reviews:

Rankin (The Handmade Alphabet, 1991, etc.) returns with another elegant study of American Sign Language, demonstrating the count up to 100. The imaginative drawings show the hand in starting position, the direction of the motion, and the final position for each number. Some sequences are quite challenging, but the presentation is utterly charming: every page presents a number, shows the handwork, and, against a brown-paper background, a corresponding number of objects. Butterflies, wildflowers, toy dinosaurs, dolls, fish, and more are on display, while the last page furnishes inquisitive readers with the names of the objects presentednot just four butterflies, but an Adonis blue, a monarch, a purple spotted swallowtail, and a cloudless sulphur.
