Anno's Counting Book by Mitsumasa Anno
At first there is an empty field. Then in January, month 1 of the year, there is one building, one fir tree and one snowman. Each month of the year is explored with a detailed watercolour picture, full of objects to group and count. There are coloured blocks at the side of each page representing the month number, which children can match with the numerals and with
the objects that they can count in the picture. This book provides lots of opportunities for children to practise their counting and observation skills.
