Synopsis: Now in Paperback!In a companion book to the acclaimed ARLENE ALDA’S ABC, the author turns her sharp photographer's eye on nature and the everyday objects around us, finding numerals in the most surprising places. Some photographs may require a closer look, while others are as plain as the nose on your face—or a curl of hair that makes a perfect 6! It's fun to see the number 4 made by a flamingo’s legs or the natural 9 of a spiral seashell in this unique counting book that goes from 1 to 10 . . . and back again! 1999 ALA Notable Children's Book. 1999 Hornbook Fanfare Title.
Review: As in her previous Arlene Alda's ABC, this keen-eyed photographer has managed to put a new and refreshing twist on the hoariest of children's-book content... number identification! This intriguing picture book takes you from 1 to 10 and back again, and each number is illustrated by often whimsical color photographs. Alda's sharp eye sees the number 2, for example, in an old-fashioned coat hanger; number 3 in the neck of a swan reflected in water; and number 8 in the two halves of a sliced and liberally cream-cheesed bagel. Some of the shapes are strikingly apt, while others need a bit of "reading," but all are designed to help young readers see the world--and the world of numbers--a bit differently. (Ages 2 to 4) --Richard Farr
