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.
