books for creative kids


Six board book



Six board book


Six isn’t your average counting book. Your child will love identifying what sort of thing is being repeated (is it a boat? a swimmer? a buoy?) while also becoming more familiar with counting. For littler ones, this is a beautiful introduction to the world of numbers. For toddlers and older children, the content of the paintings leave a lot of room for discussion and thought beyond the pages of the book.

Perfect introduction to contemporary art, abstract art, and mark making. Counting book that is out of sequential order but supported by the images on each page.
