"A fiesta of colors and images dominate this shimmering, educational book." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Take a trip to the Caribbean, where one little island offers many exotic items to count Here the three hilltop houses are painted in tropical hues, the five market ladies wear shady hats, the nine limbo dancers sway on a sunny beach, and the ten wildly dressed children celebrate carnival time. With vivid colors and an invitingly naive touch, Frane Lessac leads a laid-back counting lesson in true island style.
