COUNT ON IT. By Jenny Feely. 24 small books and one Big Book. Oxford University Press pound;35

"No one behind the one under the table..." The words, with pictures to match, come from Hide and Seek, the title of the "zero" book in this boxed set of 24.

Other books cover counting to 1, to 2, to 3 and so on up to 10, with photographs around a theme. Dinner Time, the count to 4 book, has pictures of four lambs, four bottles, four hay bales, and so on. Other topics among the small books (about A5 format) include Sharing, Ordinals, Add onetwo, One Less, and Numbers Around Us.
