Delightfully illustrated, this picture book is a great way to challenge your children to think outside the box and notice numbers when they appear in everyday places. Going sequentially from numbers 1 to 21, these paintings are sure to provoke your children's natural curiosity with the world. From the number 4 hidden in the Brooklyn Bridge, to the number 8 in two trash cans, this companion book to Johnson's Caldecott Honor book, Alphabet City, stays true to Johnson's guidelines of keeping the paintings true to their real-life, natural form. 28 pages, softcover from Puffin.
In the ideal follow-up to his stunning Caldecott Honor book Alphabet City, Stephen T. Johnson turns his talents towards numbers. Wordless spreads featuring impressively photo-realistic paintings of New York City invite readers both young and old to search for the numbers zero through twenty-one hidden in the images. From a sweeping 4 found in the span of an urban bridge to the 13 of a faded crosswalk, this is an intriguing new way to think about numbers and the world around you.
"Johnson's images are fascinating." -School Library Journal
