Sometimes when I am depressed I read 'counting from 1 to 10' books - I think it takes me back to a time when everything was simple and innocent...this book has beautiful illustrations.

Bright, beautiful pictures. This is a simple counting book. Great for reading with young readers.

Author-illustrator Mies van Hout (Friends, Happy) brings readers another joyously bright and engaging book with From 1 to 10. A wonderfully colourful, appealing, and spare counting book, van Hout draws and holds the readers' attention with clear, highlighted numbers and descriptors, and super artwork. From '1 belly' on a huggable bear, '4 wings' on a vivid butterfly, to '7 stripes' on a beaming fish, the counting examples and accompanying illustrations are eye-catching and invite young readers

Love the padded binding, love the art. The instructions for teaching counting at the back of the book, I don't love so much. Can't they just read it and enjoy it together, and won't most adults figure out how to use it?

A counting book as good as any other and illustrated more interestingly than most.

I always appreciate simple counting books. And I love that the author includes tips in the back.

This is a great counting book and the first one my 2.5yo actually engages with, probably because it was so simple and colorful. Definitely a hit.

Beautiful and simple. Perfect for read-alouds with 1-3 y/o.
With suggestions about how to help a youngster learn to count in the back matter, this striking board book takes readers from one to ten in charmingly unique ways. Readers won't find any apples or boring objects as they count what they see. In fact, for instance, the number one is matched with a most attractive red belly, number seven goes with the vertical stripes on a fish, and nine necessitates counting the shiny white teeth of a crocodile. The book was originally published in the ...more
This was a really fun storytime read, with lots of opportunities for toddlers to count along or find their own body parts. Worked well for my big group, but would shine even more in a smaller group or as a lapsit book, where the child could point out or trace the elements on the page. Love the reinforced pages for toddlers and the counting tips at the end for further caregiver-child early literacy development!

There are quite a few counting books out there, and this one is a nice addition. The items to count don't follow the usual route of "4 cats, 5 dogs, 6 mice, etc." Instead, the reader is asked to count identifying factors or body parts "2 ears, 3 spots, etc." It was a nice to find a book that had a change of pace within the genre.

For: readers needing a basic book about counting.

Possible red flags: some readers may find it anticlimactic or lacking in plot.
This tile was first published in the Netherlands in 2018. The double page spreads feature one colorful animal depicted on the background of a primary color with one feature on the animal to count corresponding to the number, for example the eight legs of the octopus. This is definitely a beginning counting book for the very youngest.
Also included are five easy common sense suggestions for counting with the youngest child.
A simple counting book that also offers come good vocabulary opportunities.

Would be great for babytime.
Various animals exemplify the numbers 1 to 10.

This picture book teaches counting from 1 to 10 and basic animal body parts. The illustrations are brightly colored and stylized. They reminded me of Eric Carle's illustrations for Bill Martin's Bears series.

Five activities to help children learn and understand numbers are given at the end of the book.

I grew up in a village in the south of Holland called Hapert. My father allways told us stories. When he was telling we were all sitting around him. I also liked reading, but most of the time I was drawing.
When I was very young I knew that I wanted to become a drawer. And I didn't know what to do otherwise.
