Children will learn to count from 1 to 12 while looking at fine art masterpieces in this lively new book. Cats by Gainsborough, boats by Van Gogh, a circle of dancers by Matisse, a king and queen sculpted by Henry Moore—they’re all here to encourage counting and to introduce the fascinating world of art. A short rhyme perfect for reading aloud accompanies each illustration, helping children find the objects to count. Art 123 is a great book for all art lovers

Praise for ART 123
Zuffi provides a puzzlelike approach to counting objects in selected works of art. Readers can count from 1 to 12 in the first dozen artworks and then jump to counting "so many" in the final selection. Each piece appears opposite a pertinent rhyming sentence or two and large bold numerals indicating how many items to find in each picture. Some can be challenging to locate. Readers count people, kittens, sun rays, shapes, boats, flowers. . . . .Hopper, Matisse, Van Gogh, and Renoir are among the featured painters. This picture book works well as a concept book and as a resource for stimulating art appreciation. Because the size of the images varies, Art 123 would be best used for one-on-one sharing. It is a worthy extra purchase for libraries needing more counting or art-appreciation materials.–Lynn Vanca, Freelance Librarian, Akron, OH, School Library Journal
