One to Ten and Back Again by Nick Sharratt and Sue Heap

ISBN: 978-0140567861

This very simple picture book is about two friends, Sue and Nick, who like very different things but are still best friends. They introduce us to all their favourite things from one boy called Nick and one girl called Sue to ten cakes for tea, and then all the way back down to one yellow moon shining in the night sky. A wonderful and unique look at counting and friendship.

I really like this counting book for lots of reasons! It rhymes, the illustrations are bright, bold and engaging, and there are lots of things to count and talk about on each page. The list of items at the end of the story reminds children of the favourite things that they counted along with on each page next to the corresponding number. Counting up from one to ten and then back down again will help children to practise the sequence of counting and recognise number patterns.
