Candy 1 To 20

Laurie Wolf and Pam Abrams, photos by Bruce Wolf. Chronicle, $8.99 (20p) ISBN 978-1-4521-0293-1

This counting book contains mouth-watering, high-contrast photographs of numbers one through 12, constructed from corresponding quantities of candy pieces and presented against white backgrounds. The number four is constructed from as many lollipops, seven from red licorice pinwheels, and 19 from glossy M&M's. Wolf's photos capture the fine confectionary details, from the sugar coating on sour strips to the powdery hues of LEGO candy, making this an especially kid-friendly approach to counting. All ages.
