Books Worth a Look

Everybody Counts by Kristin Roskifte

Everybody Counts is so much more than just a children’s counting book!  The colorful illustrations on each page portray a variety of people in both humorous and grave everyday situations.  Each picture counts an increasing number of people; four in a band; twelve at a birthday party; thirty in a park, etc., but this is only one aspect of the book.  There is also a clever puzzle to be solved.
