What can you do with ten black dots? In this counting book, one dot can make a sun, two dots can make the eyes of a fox, all the way up to ten dots making balloons stuck in a tree. Young children will be able to practise counting the simple dots in each picture, linking this number to the numeral and word in the accompanying text. Children can also draw their own dot pictures with different numbers of dots in them. The final page represents each number of dots as a staircase pattern.
