Each number from one to ten changes gradually into a familiar object or animal.

Numbers one through 10 appear on the left-hand pages in ascending order, first as numerals and then, on the opposite page, as objects composed of altered number forms. For example, three different threes make a frog and 10 entire 10s are various parts of a hot-air balloon. Each number word is presented in large letters above the numeral. Symbols and shapes come alive in brilliant colors and interesting textures.
