Ten objects from the French decorative arts collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum--fine clocks, gilded chairs, and elaborate globes among them--are cleverly arranged for little fingers to find and play with in this childrens counting book. Once young readers solidify their counting skills in the first half of the book, the objects are scrambled and used to teach how to count backwards, from ten to one. At the end, all of the objects are shown in context in an image of a gallery filled with the furniture and other objects from the book. Like its popular companion volume, A is for Artist: A Getty Museum Alphabet Book, this book provides parents and educators with a unique opportunity to help children learn basic skills while, at the same time, teaching them to look closely at great art objects. In addition, adult fans of decorative arts will delight in this books richly illustrated, whimsically designed pages.
