Zero feels empty and wants to count, like her buddies One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight and Nine.  She tries to become just like them in order to improve her value, but even Zero can learn to see herself in a new light.

Clever, fun and all about numbers, this book is perfect for “Zero, The Hero Day” or counting by tens practice.

Find tens on a hundreds chart or use an interactive chart online. Check here to see a few inside pages.
