Children / Counting / 4-6 years
9 x 7 inches
Available September 2014
This colorful alphabet and counting book is an exciting introduction to letters and numbers for young children who are just beginning to recognize letters and numbers. Lots of elements combine to emphasize learning but in such a clever, fun-to-look-at way that readers won’t even realize they are learning as they go.
Each letter is presented in a strongly contrasting color scheme that combines one saturated hue with white for a bold look.
- Bold graphics create a sense of movement
- Each letter is accompanied by a number, which is shown in numeral form
- Children can count the number of letters, reinforcing both the alphabetic and numeric learning

His recent successful Kickstarter campaign for a graphic counting poster called One to One Hundred more than met its mark. Mark spent the better portion of his early life watching tv, going to movies, and playing video games, little realizing this was to be the essential ground work for a successful career in cartooning and graphic design.
