Countablock - Christopher Franceschelli, Peskimo

Author Christopher Franceschelli and illustrator Peskimo tackle numeric territory in Countablock (Abrams Appleseed, $16.95), an interactive journey from one to 100. The book’s cut-out numbers will entice little hands, and its durable pages can withstand months of preschool exploration. Numbers one to 10 receive two-page spreads, and each page turn reveals an exciting transformation: One acorn becomes one tree! Three boxes become three forts! The cause-and-effect play continues as the text counts by 10s to 100. The occasional silly subversion of expectations—40 eggs become 39 chicks and one dinosaur—will appeal to young and old. Though the book will inspire frequent re-reading, adults need not fear: Peskimo’s distinctive retro style is a pleasure to peruse again and again.  Ages 2-5.  ACD
