Friends: A Counting Book
by Ekkers
Pictures by Moof

ISBN: 9789814189989
Format: Hard cover
Price: $19.90 (GST inclusive)
Published by: Landmark Books and Woods in the Books

Friends can be quiet, cheeky, tall, short, plump, strong, wheelchair users, or dressed like teddy bears. Friends can be everyone we meet. Celebrate friends of all kinds with this unique counting book.

As children are ready to learn to count, they are also at the age when they begin to be aware of the differences in the people around them. Boys or girls, dark or light skinned, tall children, lean ones, those who use wheelchairs, the ones who are smaller than themselves, the shy ones, the chubby ones too….

This unique counting book does these two things. It teaches kids numbers and counting from one to twelve through a delightful rhyme. It also gives parents and caregivers the opportunity to talk to them about respecting and connecting with the many people they meet in their daily lives who are different from themselves.

Both ideas are supported by Moof’s lively illustrations that are filled with interesting details that any young child can relate to. More than this, the book may also be used to play a meaningful spotting game by finding every child illustrated in its pages in the last spread.

Ekkers has written Jun and the Octopus, a picture book about body safety that helps broach the subject of child sexual abuse. As an experienced publisher, editor and book designer, he has produced books for young children on divorce, autism and childhood cancer. Besides children books, his publishing experience ranges from poetry, to cookery to social history.

Moof lives and breathes illustration, as can be seen from his Instagram page Instagram.com/moofmike. He has illustrated Sing A Song of Mankind: A Nursery Sequence for the Sixties by Cultural Medallion winner, poet Anne Lee Tzu Pheng. He has conducted art and craft workshops for premier brands Fendi and Kids21 and painted murals for schools, shops and homes. Moof owns and runs Woods In The Books, one of the few specialist children’s bookshops in Singapore, with his wife, Shannon. 

As a team, we are well equipped to make Friends: A Counting Book of the highest quality.
