Review quotes

"The clever use of color gradation is what makes the book stand out most, evoking the passage of time and world travel . . . The hues are evocative enough to make impressionable readers shiver and sweat in the same sitting . . . one worth counting."
Kirkus Reviews

"The Very Cold, Freezing, No-Numbers Day is a creative early numbers story that encourages children to interact with the story by tracing vanishing numbers, blowing on numbers to warm them up, and generally helping to rescue the numbers from The Very Cold, Freezing, No-Numbers Day. The theme of this exciting story is 'Count to save the numbers,' and children are motivated to do exactly that. The colors of page illustrations gradually thaw from icy blues, whites, and purples, to warmer greens, yellows, oranges and reds. Children who follow these pages are simultaneously learning numbers, colors, patterns, seasons, and connection, or the importance of direct intervention. The artwork in The Very Cold, Freezing, No-Numbers Day is superb and deeply wedded to the exciting narrative. It is an excellent choice for a vibrant multi sensory education experience for children ages 2 and up. Another creative learning title from the same publisher that is also highly recommended is the following: Full of Empty  (9781942934356, $16.95), by Tim J. and M. Priscilla Myers, illustrated by Rebecca Sorge."
