I think this book is underrated and quite lovely. There are a few board books that do and I spy sort of theme in art, however this is large and the pictures are large enough to study. Early introduction to art is important and the numbers encourage close inspection. It also gives children something to do at museums and teaches them that art is accessible. This game can be played in any art setting and it encourages parents to understand that children have a place in that world as well.

This is an interesting counting book. It teaches children how to count but also introduces them to the world of art. The book also makes it fun for children to read because they make it into an "I spy" game which makes the child interact with the book and really look at the pictures.

My kids got tired of the number aspect after 12. They did, however, continue to inspect the paintings for random details, like "the giant, nasty bug" in the painting with the 18 cherries. They were also intrigued by the different works featuring Mary and Jesus.

Shelves: math
-Great for counting
-Allows children to see numbers within art
-uses real pieces of art by famous artists
-I would use this to integrate art with math and allow my students to create a piece of artwork that has some amount or number in it.

Nicely done. The numbers encourage a little picture study as the kids try to find all the items in the paintings.
