ANNO'S COUNTING BOOKBook - 1977
A counting book depicting the growth in a village and surrounding countryside during twelve months.
‘An excellent introduction to number systems that is a beautiful wordless picture book as well. . . Over the course of a year (each picture represents a different month and time of day) a little town grows up with viewers witnessing the building of bridges, streets, and railroads. . . . Extraordinary lovely art work.’ —SLJ.
