Book Overview

Following on the heels of a successful abecedary, Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each numeral, creating a peek-through guessing game around the number form itself. One acorn becomes . . . one oak tree From snowmen to puddles and eggs to chicks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their transformations. As children interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the numbers 1-100 and associated quantities, but with each numeral's physicality--angles, holes, and curves, both front and back. Die-cut numerals include 1-10, and 20-100 by tens. Illustrated by hip British design team Peskimo, this fresh take on the 1-2-3s encourages readers to manipulate numbers in a whole new way.
Note: illustrations are in the style of vintage screen prints, with imperfect variations in color and texture.

Also available: A BOX OF BLOCKS, featuring Alphablock, Countablock, and Dinoblock.

   and my daughter loved that so much I decided that another one we ...
This is our second book Block ''. We have the alphabet as well, and my daughter loved it so much that I decided we needed another! Numbers 1 through 10 have their own individual pages, as well as any leading number, i.e. The pictures are detailed and bold, and very bright. It really helps her in learning how to count, and I couldn t be happier about it.

   Fun Counting!
It is a substantial book, about two inches thick. Each page directs the reader through the counting process to 100 in 10's. My 18-month-old loves turning the pages and I have heard my three-year-old now counting up to 30 due to reading this book. I know this because she shares parts of the book with it. It is such a fun book to read with your children. There is also a great book AlphaBlock, which is also very good.

   Good and fun numbers book
Counts 1-10, like most number books, but what sets this one apart is that it marches on to 100 by 10s. It is fun to count all the different items used to track the growing numbers.

   Another great countablock book
The book abc is a firm favorite in this house and this is no different. Great book with lovely illustrations to keep children engaged. Love it goes all the way to 100, as many don t go that far. The quality is also great.

   Arrived damaged. Won't last a month. Flimsy construction.
The content itself is good enough, but it arrived damaged and slapped with a huge barcode sticker on the front cover. This is not a very cheap book, but it is so cheaply constructed. The more I am looking at it, the angrier I am. This item has been torn apart. The pictures don 't even show the extent of damage.

   Love them! But this ones a little much for a baby.
For this book, I don 't love how long it is. It is a lot to absorb for my son. I wish they had one that was less than 100. Maybe it could be split into a couple of smaller books like 1-20, 20-50, 50-100. Nevertheless, if he’s older, it will be great. And theoretically, I can stop reading at 20 just. I just don 't love the layout of 10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19. We have all but the Star Wars and Marvel - Wars. Can 't wait for the Barn addition to come out! The board isn 't super thick, so I imagine that as he gets older some folds might be torn, but the style of the book is adorable!

   Warning: Annoying ink smudges throughout the copies I just received of this otherwise great book
I conceptually like these books really well, and artistically. Five stars for this part, and I commend the creators for their vision. I work in printing and would have sent these or rejected them to ROSS or something. Nevertheless, I 'll swap the gift for a copy of Alphaablocks, which was also delivered in the same box and intended for my own child. The same exact problem!

   Fantastic book!!!
As a former teacher and now mother of two, I am in LOVE with this book! We were gifted with Alpha Block and we loved it so much that I went looking for more. This not only has the same scientific graphics and intelligently designed page cut outs, but is full of great concepts that are so much fun to explore with little ones! Visuals of the tenth base concepts are great.
