What better way to learn how to count than with eye-catching works of art? From fanciful folk Mexican puppets, Egyptian eyes, and lively masks to golden antiquities, Olmec era sculpture, and European paintings, children will become armchair world travelers while being introduced to the world of art and learning how to count from one to ten. This bilingual edition also introduces children at a young age to both English and Spanish.
Art for this book was selected from the collection of the San Antonio Museum of Art, one of the leading art museums in the United States with a collection spanning a broad range of history and world cultures.
This bilingual counting book features works on display at the San Antonio Museum of Art; basic descriptions and questions encourage close examination of each image. Six Mexican folk-art puppets strum instruments; a detail from Faith Ringgold's The Funeral: Lover's Quilt #3 features nine portraits on fabric and the prompt, "Who is wearing a hat?" On another spread, 10 anthropomorphic and ceremonial masks confront readers with their dynamic expressions. Perceptive readers will likely be drawn toward the diverse images and media, which are identified in an appended section. Ages 4 8.
