I love this little book! The concept of zero is so hard to understand for little ones and Oliver Jeffers does a great job! Not only do we learn about what "none" is, but you also get to know other number friends and examples up through ten! It exposes kids to the importance of numbers in describing things while creating positive association with counting so the kids are less intimidated later in life. A great book for your curious little one!
Learn to countwith the #1 New York Times bestselling artist of The Day the Crayons Quit and his hilariouscast ofHueys "Is none a number?" you might ask. I'm glad you did. The answer is Yes For example, how many lumps of cheese do you see next to you? The answer, depending on where you are, is likely "none." Counting withthe reader all the way up to ten, the Hueys explain numbers as only they can. Such as: The number 4 is the number of tantrums thrown by Dave every day. 7 is the number of oranges balanced on things. And 9 is the number of seagulls who attacked Frank's French fries. Together they make quite a spectacle. But when you take away all of these fun illustrations in the book? You're left with none This funny and accessible counting book from #1 New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers (The Day the Crayons Quit; This Moose Belongs to Me) gives the Hueys one more reason to be every young child's best friends. Praise for NONE THE NUMBER "Delightfully droll and enlightening . . .. The illustrations, 'made with pencils and a bit of color' on large white pages, are deceptively simple and ridiculously funny."--School Library Journal
