Beautiful objects from the French Decorative Arts collection in the J. Paul Getty Museum, such as clocks, beds, chairs, and tea cups, are cleverly arranged for little fingers to find in this children's 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 companion volume, "A is for Artist: A Getty Museum Alphabet Book", this book provides a unique opportunity to help children learn basic skills while teaching them to look closely at great art objects. It is for ages two and up.
