Familiar objects such as skyscrapers, bags of leaves, cars --- and even french fries! --- will help children discover that numbers are all around them. Soon they'll be counting just for the fun of it!
Zoran Milich is an award-winning photojournalist. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
An excellent, well-constructed concept book. Outstanding color photographs invite children to count skyscrapers, taxis, firefighters' boots, and other familiar objects around the city. Children will thoroughly enjoy this first-rate counting book.

By adding a bit of humor and a sense of context, Milich has created a book that is even more child-friendly than his previous concept books, and just as handsome.
From the numeral one on the back of a bystander's lime-green shirt to the 10 gold mail slots on an apartment building, the images offer a visually enticing (and educational) tour.
Milich's pristine images and counter-friendly layout rank this title among the best [photo concept books].
