Product Description

Ingeniously designed, it combines a double-thick board book with ten colorful, government safety-tested plastic buttons attached by ten strong colorful ribbons, all bound into the spine.

The object is simple. On spread one - One button Billy kids take one of the buttons and snap it into the die-cut holes, in this case filling out the "eyes" of a character's face. And so on, up to Ten buttons on his nose, where kids fill in the inverted pyramid of buttons over a juggler's head.

The rhyming text is simple and energetic; the illustrations are dynamic collages made of cut felt. Little kids learning to count (and those who already know their one-to-tens) will be popping the buttons in and out, again and again. Hardcover, 22 pages.

Publisher's Description

Little kids love to count. Little kids love counting books, too. And little kids also love manipulatives- tactile objects disguised as educational tools that are pleasing to the touch and a joy to play with. Now add them together, and the result is the all-but irresistible 10 Button Book.

Created by celebrated folk artist William Accorsi, 10 Button Book is the gutsiest, most interactive of counting books. Ingeniously designed, it combines a double-thick board book with ten colorful, government safety-tested plastic buttons attached by ten strong colorful ribbons, all bound into the spine. The object is simple. On spread one - One button Billy kids take one of the buttons and snap it into the die-cut holes, in this case filling out the "eyes" of a character's face. And so on, up to Ten buttons on his nose, where kids fill in the inverted pyramid of buttons over a juggler's head. The rhyming text is simple and energetic; the illustrations are dynamic collages made of cut felt. Little kids learning to count (and those who already know their one-to-tens) will be popping the buttons in and out, again and again. And undoubtedly there to help in the fun will be the kids who are their parents.
