From the publisher:
Every child is a natural mathematician, according to Mitsumasa Anno. Children are constantly comparing and classifying things and events they observe around them. As they try to bring sense and order into what they observe, they are actually performing basic mathematical feats.
With Anno's Counting Book, the creator of the brilliantly inventive Anno's Alphabet invites young readers on another stimulating adventure of the imagination—this time into the world of numbers and counting.
Gentle watercolor pictures show a landscape changing through the various times of day and the turning seasons, months and years, and the activities of the people and animals who come to live there. But the seemingly simple plan of the book is deceptive: look more carefully and you will see one-to-one correspondences; groups and sets; scales and tabulations; changes over time periods; and many other mathematical relationships as they occur in natural, everyday living. The reader is subtly led to see and understand the real meaning of numbers.
Look at this book and look again. Each time you do so, you will find another application of a natural mathematical concept that you had not noticed before.
The Five Chinese Brothers by Claire Huchet Bishop and Kurt Wiese tells the story of five identical brothers who all have special abilities. When the first brother who can swallow the sea gets in trouble with the executioner, his five brothers step in to help save his life with their special gifts.
Millions of Cats by Wanda Gág tells the story of a little old man and little old woman who wanted a kitten. The old man went out to find a kitten for his wife, and he found not one, not ten, but millions and billions of cats. Since the old man cannot decide which is the loveliest, he simply brings them all home with him. Having millions of cats does not turn out like the old man thought it might, but in the end the old man and woman end up with the prettiest, most perfect cat for them.
