“Stylish silkscreenlike illustrations and opportunities for both counting and guessing what happens next should keep copies of this chunky book well-loved.” ―Publishers Weekly
Learning to count is as easy as 1, 2, 3 in this fun addition to the Abrams Block Book series! Young readers will explore the joy of numbers in an exciting and unique way, from 1 right up to 100.
Perfect for little hands, Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each numeral, creating a peek-through guessing game around the number form itself. One acorn becomes . . . one oak tree! From snowmen to puddles and eggs to chicks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their “transformations.”
As children interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the numbers 1–100 and associated quantities, but with each numeral’s physicality—angles, holes, and curves, both front and back. Numerals include 1–10, and 20–100 counted by tens for easier understanding.
Like other books in the Block Book series such as Alphablock, Cityblock, Dinoblock, and Buildablock, Countablock features die-cuts on every spread. In addition, this book ends with two special pages that fold out to reveal a grand finale illustration of 100 puzzle pieces.
With bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio, this fresh take on counting encourages readers to manipulate numbers in a whole new way. Your child will have so much fun reading this book, they won’t realize that learning to count to 100 is part of their education!
