This is such a beautiful book. We love it. LOVE it. Perfect for your young children learning how to count or your older naturalist. Calvin is writing his own book like this, because it is interesting to think about the connection between numbers and nature. Combine these ideas with the texture of the pages and the gorgeous illustrations, and you have a family keepsake, not just a book.
Ages 3 and up.
In one lifetime, a caribou will shed 10 sets of antlers, a woodpecker will drill 30 roosting holes, a giraffe will wear 200 spots, a seahorse will birth 1,000 babies.
