Lovely! I'm sure this is more sophisticated for the intended audience of little ones just learning to count from one to twelve. But so what! A little art can't hurt anybody. Each number has a rhyming verse based on a work of art, including the numeral, a pictograph of the sign language symbol of the number, and information about the art displayed. The best kind of simple book; so much here to enjoy with each reading. The art and the artists here are not what you find in just any art book for young children. And for that reason, a wide array of art (one Henry Moore sculpture), is introduced to young eyes so that they might find the art world more familiar and less intimidating to them as they grow up.
