3 - Count Book
25 colour illustrations, 64 pages, hardcover; age from 4 years
Children love to watch closely, much better than most grown-ups do. This children’s book illustrates 25 works of art on which something can be counted: the number of girls on the painting, parts of a dress, quite a few chairs in the doll’s house or the number of cups of the pretty tea service. The left pages of the book are only marked with a large figure and on the right pages the work of art is pictured; one does not know what has to be counted, just how many there are. To increase the challenge the multiplication table of 3 is incorporated in “3”; on the last page one has to count 75 objects. The book includes an index with the title, artist and material of the work of art in Dutch and English.
