Part counting game, part guessing game, this delightful board book invites little ones to look at one thing, and guess what else it could be. Each page shows one shape, and then unfolds to reveal an ingenious surprise, sure to captivate curious toddlers.
The illustrations for this book are ridiculously clever. Seriously. Each page starts with an illustration the looks like one thing (like a donut) and then accordion folds out to reveal something entirely different (like a cat). The illustrations also count from 1 to 10, which is a bonus if you’re working on counting, and overall it truly an enjoyable read!
