Book Description

3 Mar 2005 Picture Puffin

A wonderful and unique look at counting and friendship.

This very simple picture book is about two friends, Sue and Nick, who like very different things but are still best friends. They introduce us to all their favourite things from one boy called Nick and one girl called Sue to ten cakes for tea, and then all the way back down to one yellow moon shining in the night sky. The artwork is stunning with each artist contributing alternate pages in their own inimitable style. The deceptively simple text is perfect for children learning to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Count from one to ten and backwards to one again! 28 April 2009
Format:Board book
This review is for the hardcover PUFFIN version, from 2004.

From the back cover:-

'Start with one boy called Nick,
and add one girl called Sue,
then count all the way to ten cakes for tea!

Join award-winning best friends, Sue Heap and Nick Sharratt, on a bright and exciting counting journey from one to ten and all the way back again.'

Starting with a cheery wave, one boy called Nick and one girl called Sue take us through the numbers one to ten, then backwards to one!

Colourful covers have the duo in a sea theme and opens to 30 high quality pages, superbly illustrated in vibrant colours, with a variety of scenes and nouns.

Bold, easy-to-follow and read-along-with text, occasionally rhyming (or close to!) in the front half.

Example of text:-

'One boy called Nick,
One girl called Sue,
Two woolly gloves,
Two shiny shoes.

Three round buttons,
Four bright bows,
Five pink pigs,
Six sheep in a row........'

The backward countdown is simply nouns, e.g.:-

'Ten oranges,
Nine lemons,
Eight crayons,
Seven pens......'

.....and when we get to when the story ends........with
'One yellow moon....
...we get a hundred stars, to illustrate the night-time sky!

The book finishes with a two page spread - one in blue, (ascending) and one in pink (descending) with the relevant numbers and pictures from the story, which is an added bonus.

Generally, I think that the book could have been further enhanced with the digits also being printed on the relevant pages repeat and encourage recognition skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book for learning numbers! 20 Nov 2011
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We bought this book as we kept getting it out of the library and it was such a winner with our two-year-old twins! Both love the colourful illustrations and frequently ask for 'Sue and Nick' to be read to them.

It has made counting fun, and both children will now happily count to ten with or without the book. Highly recommended.
