What kind of a counting book is this? On the first page all we see is a barren winter landscape-a hazy, blue sky above a hazy, white hill. Nothing to count here.
In this book, Mitsumasa Anno, the creator of the brilliantly inventive Anno's Alphabet, invites young readers on another stimulating adventure of the imagination-this time into the world of numbers and counting. Gentle watercolor pictures show a landscape changing through the various times of day and the turning seasons, months and years, and the activities of the people and animals who come to live there.
First there is an empty field. Then it is January, the 1st month of the year. All alone in the snow strands 1 yellow house. In front, 1 child builds a snowman. Behind the house is 1 tree and 1 black crow. Now, five months later, it is June. There are 6 buildings in the field, 6 children playing, and 6 adults working. One adult tends 6 ducks. Another drives a train with 6 cars. From 1 to 12, through the months of the year, the town grows. More houses and trees and animals and people can be seen - until finally December arrives with all its wintery magic. Truly an excellent book! Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 17 years ago.

Anno’s Counting Book. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1998. Genre: Fiction Recommended for: Nursery to Early Primary I picked this book because my initial reaction to the cover was that this book looked really cute and upon flipping through it, I discovered it was all illustrations and numbers, no words.

Gentle watercolor pictures show a landscape changing through the various times of day and the turning seasons, months and years, and the activities of the people and animals who come to live there. But the seemingly simple plan of the book is deceptive: look more carefully and you will see one-to-one correspondences; groups and sets; scales and tabulations; changes over time periods; and many other mathematical relationships as they occur in natural, everyday living.
