What did you like about the book? This beautifully illustrated book, done in cut paper, pastels, watercolor, pencils and digital collage, teaches the numbers around the farm. 1 One moon rises (the barn), 2 Two stars come out (two stars shining with the moon as backdrop), 3 Three owlets rest, high in the treetops (three sleeping owls) and continuing up through 10 Ten ducklings tuck beneath a warm wing (Mom and her chicks). All the illustrations are so calming and restful making this a perfect bedtime story choice. An enchanting book.
Anything you did not like about this book? No.
