How Many

When I first bought this book, James was just one, so its appeal was limited to the “wow” factor of flashy, intricate pop ups (some of which are quite delicate, with interlooping circles, squares and stars). Now that he’s two and can reliably count to eleven, we can actually do a lot of the suggested activities, such as “How many triangles can you see through?” “Which star contains the most star shapes?” A lot of the questions, though, are still too complex: this is one of those books that functions on different levels at different ages, but the visual appeal is there from the beginning. Giggle factor: contains a “wow” factor instead. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: five jelly jars (as long as it’s kept on the top shelf, as this would be a particularly easy book to dismember).
