How do we love numbers? Let us count the ways: They're on street signs and bus stops, featured on phones, thermometers, chalkboards, and scales. We use numbers to show the time and the date, and help us to measure distance, sizing, and so much more. They're also fun, as this 1985 book for readers up to 8 demonstrates. The author-illustrator of Over the Ocean, Taro Gomi has painted his characters—students, baseball players, bus drivers, mail carriers—as Japanese, adding considerably to the charm of this counting book.
