Review: Number Circus: 1 – 10 and Back Again by Kveta Pacovska

This is an unusual counting book which doesn’t have a story line, or the usual simplified numbers and related illustrations. It seems, instead, like a piece of art with pictures becoming numbers, or numbers becoming pictures. It’s very interactive, with lots to see and do throughout the book.

The focus here really is on the artwork because the occasional sentences on the pages didn’t seem to make much sense. There’s no discernible storyline running through the book, and to be honest by the time you’ve finished counting things or lifting flaps, poking and prodding, you’ve forgotten what the words said anyway!
