The return period passed before I made time to fully examine the book. Otherwise, I would have returned it.
If the pages began on the Left so that the number symbol would correspond to the number of objects then it would make sense and be a good learning tool.
A final complaint is the "number rod" pages on the last pages. If you count the rods left to right, then 1 is equal to 10 units. If they had left a little space between the rods the confusion this causes would have been eliminated.
I was so happy with the Letter Work book and so disappointed by this one. My guess is that the authors intended for the numbers to match the objects, but the publisher wanted to save some money so they did it to conserve a page. Hopefully, they will republish and have numbers correspond to the objects.
Here's why there is a problem. You open the book to page 1. You see nothing on the left side and one boat on the right side. Then you flip the page and see the number one on the left side and two owls on the right side. This doesn't make any sense, especially for young minds. They don't understand why they see the number 1 but two characters, and etc.
This book has a great concept but it not put together correctly. It is confusing trying to teach a child when the pages are not showing correctly. When you open the book there is one thing on the left yet another on the right and for a child who would be using this book, that is not acceptable.
The book is made well material wise and the graphics and coloring of the book is awesome. It is a great start to something fantastic but needs some redesigning to really be great.
