Olivia Countsby Ian Falconer
Synopses & Reviews
Falconer's delightful piglet, Olivia, makes the transition from picture books. From one ball, to four aunts to seven accessories, kids can count along from one to ten with everyone's favorite piggy.
"Youngsters start with one ball at the beach (in the signature red-and-white stripes) and finish with ten Olivias jumping rope, doing handstands and sprawling on a beach towel." Publishers Weekly
"Popular little Olivia is as delightful when demonstrating concepts in board books for the very young children as she is in her usual picture-book format." Booklist
These unique board books bring the popular Montessori pedagogy to trade book form for the first time. Using materials and methods common to Montessori classrooms, these interactive board books immerse young children in an aesthetically rich learning experience, while providing parents and caregivers with carefully crafted language to encourage understanding.
This book follows the Montessori method by introducing the numbers 1 to 10 first as quantities to count before showing them as numerals. Cumulative red and blue tabs based on the counting rods found in Montessori classrooms help readers conceptualize quantities. Groupings of beautifully stylized illustrations provide objects to count before readers encounter textured numerals to trace with their fingers.
