100 Things by Masayuki Sebe is a counting book crossed with a look-and-find book. On each page there are 100 things (as the title suggests), including 100 moles, 100 sheep, 100 fish and 100 cars. Not only can you count the things on each page, but you can find all the things that are the same colour (how many green fish?), find the odd one out (where is the child wearing the hat?) and find specific things on the page (find the elephant holding a pineapple or the mole who’s farting).
The vibrant colours, the simple, child-like pictures, and the amusing details on each page make 100 Things stand out. It’s the perfect book to share with children, especially on a cold Winter’s day when you’re stuck inside.
100 Things and Dinosaurs Galore (also by Masayuki Sebe) are published by the wonderful Gecko Press, the home of curiously good books from around the world.
