Hungry for Numbers by Etienne Delessert
Book DescriptionWho would have guessed that eating and learning could go hand in hand . . . or be so much fun? From bananas and blueberries to sixes and sevens, Hungry for Numbers pairs fruit with numbers to create a delicious visual exercise in counting. The whimsical illustrations of renowned artist Etienne Delessert embody the numbers one through ten like never before, making this one book that children will be hungry to read. As usual, the artwork of this Delessert-illustrated title is anything but usual. His friendly, utterly unique characters cavort across the pages, each with its preferred fruit in hand. Each spread offers up a number, presented in both numeric and written form, and a colorfully rendered image of a creature juggling, stacking, spilling, or otherwise arranging the corresponding quantity of fruit items. The book ends in a party as all ten creatures get together to finally eat their counted-up strawberries, peaches, oranges, and more. The simple but playful nature of this one-of-a-kind number book is sure to enchant readers both young and old.
