A brand-new board book from the amazing Oliver Jeffers! As you would expect from Jeffers, this counting book is more quirky and unexpected than others in the genre. “6” is for “6 Things to Do,” and one of the six depicts a man riding a penny farthing. “5” is for “5 Things to Think About,” one of which is “fire.”
Count, think, and enjoy.— Donna
