Product Description:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Seven uniquely marked ducklings slide, chase bees, and play peekaboo as they group on double-spread pages to illustrate ways to add up to their sum. "Splashing as they leap and dive/7 ducklings, 2 plus 13cm shows five swimmers opposite two divers. Jaunty scenes in cut-paper collage with a gracious array of colours offer plenty of extras, including a pair of ladybugs that accompany the ducks throughout except for the V-formation at the end. The art successfully captures the birds' camouflage and rippling water with speckled papers, but this effect sometimes turns the counting exercise into a seek-and-find challenge. Still, the book is attractive, and children will have fun with it.

Reviews

"This deceptively straightforward book introduces youngsters to addition in such an unobtrusive, organic and merry way that they may not even notice how much they're learning. "--Publishers Weekly "Wonderfully handled . . . harmoniously reinforcing the beauty of numbers themselves."--Chicago Tribune "A delightful book offering loads of fun with the number seven. . . . This charmer should have little ones figuring out the basic concept of addition in no time."--Booklist
