A bright and vivacious counting book for the very young featuring the paintings of renowned Dutch artist and author Mies van Hout

How many whiskers does the cat have? How about the crocodile’s teeth, or the octopus’s arms? With vivid colours and energetic kid-friendly animal illustrations, this concept book doubles up the learning opportunities by including numbers and descriptive words matched to Dutch artist Mies van Hout’s striking art. Little ones can count the fish’s stripes and the monkey’s fingers, or learn the letters in words such as whiskers, wings, and ears. Rendered in bold hues that appeal to babies and pre-schoolers alike, this sturdy counting book will be a reading-time favourite.

“Don’t skip the backmatter on this one, as the clear and accessible instructions, ideas, and vocabulary offer caregivers easy ways to engage children in their own counting adventures within the book and beyond….Simplicity plus spirited art equals a counting book that you can count on.”—Kirkus **Starred Review**

“Amidst the numerous counting books available, van Hout offers a stand-out with great child (and adult) appeal….[van Hout] makes the experience of counting both joyful and imitative through the use of animal personalities and anatomies.”—Booklist **Starred Review**

“[A] delightful introduction to basic counting skills…Employ the book’s tips for more interactive learning fun or read aloud and trace the numbers, each sized for small fingers to practice shaping and identifying digits one through ten.”—Foreword Reviews

“Exuberant artwork and simple text anchor this counting book, which also includes simple games to get youngsters counting for fun.”—Youth Services Book Review

“With its padded cover, rounded corners and extra-heavy paper, From 1 to 10 is an excellent introduction to the base ten numbering system. An obvious gift or home purchase, From 1 to 10 belongs in libraries serving this audience level. Highly Recommended.”—CM Magazine

“Counting from 1 to 10 is a romp with this attractive, beautifully designed concept book….The artist inspires constant touching by making the countable elements large and obvious, through text and art. Kids won’t stop at counting the named features, they will want to show off their counting prowess with counting so much more.”—Sal’s Fiction Addiction
