horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

At Our House
At Our House is a counting book with a difference. Our house is full of people – family, the dog and then sometimes more family and friends. This means there are lots of fingers and toes, tummies, noses, teeth, hands, nails, freckles and many more things under one roof which is a lot of things to count – ‘At Our House we have 6 mouths, 6 tongues and 168 teeth’.
Isabelle Minhós Martins, in collaboration with illustrator Maddalena Matoso has created another colourful and unusual book. Matoso’s illustrations are a blaze of colour; full of rich reds, greens, pinks, oranges and black that leap off the page. The numbers are in colour within the black text which helps them stand out. At Our House is a really fun way for children to learn about parts of the body and to count.
