‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Find your way through the counting maze in this colourful large format counting puzzle board book. If this sound fun you can do all this and more in Japanese author and illustrator Masayuki Sebe’s 100 Things as it is so much more than just a counting book. Each double-page spread is packed with detail. Children can find the different colours and animals – 100 mice but `how many brown ones are there?’ or `there are a 100 fish or are there?’ Look for the little stories and jokes on each page – a crying elephant or the mole that breaks wind – and see how each spread leads on to the next, or just count to a hundred over and over again.
The final spread brings everyone together so there one 100 things. At the back of the book there are some quiz questions for each page – `where is the elephant holding a pineapple?’ or `where is the sleeping ant?’ that enables children to revisit those pages and search out the answers.
Following on from Dinosaurs Galore! Sebe has created an activity book of brightly coloured illustrations that are full of humour. This is a challenging book that will help to develop their cognitive skills and keep young children (and adults!) busy for many hours as there is always so much going on in the illustrations and some new amusing detail to find.
