Molly Idle’s Flora and the Chicks (Chronicle, $9.99) is a decidedly gentler take on numbers. The balletic Flora twirls among a group of ten eggs, which are accompanied by numerals as they hatch one at a time. Flora’s attempts to gather the chicks are gracefully comic in this sweet board book addition to the Flora series. Ages 1-5.
