The Number Garden by Sara Pinto


The Number Garden by Sara Pinto

Gardening is a busy pastime as two little rabbits find that one sun, four garden tools, five sunflowers and six seed packets soon become the source of an action-packed day. But even rabbits have to rest, and now the three lawn chairs make great places to curl up under the twelve stars and eat the nine carrots! Bright art, clear text and numbers with big flaps which reveal the new scenes combine to create a brilliant pre-school counting book with real adult and child appeal.


'There is a wealth of detail to the illustrations that will keep children going back to this book'

'The artwork is exceptional ... This book is truly delightful and one that children are unlikely to tire of. I recommend it for any age!' 'The illustrations are divine and the whole book has a lovely summery feel
