A simple cover image does not do justice to this unique title [see extra images below]. Created by Cuban-born, European-living artist and paper engineer, Dario Zeruto, it is described as a ‘pre-book’ and presumably aimed at pre-schoolers. But the book also has extraordinary potential for teachers working throughout the primary age range, who will be able to use it as a fascinating resource to promote language about number, shape and comparison.
It’s also extraordinarily pleasing as a work of art. Clean hands are recommended to preserve the pristine white background.
