It's easy to count three of something-- just add them up. But how do you count zero, a number that is best defined by what it's not?

Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?

This important math concept is beautifully explored in a way that will inspire children to find zero everywhere--from the branches of a tree by day to the vast, starry sky by night.

Baker & Taylor
Poetic, metaphorical text and stirring illustrations lead children on an exploration of zero as both a number and an abstract idea, in a book where zero is the sound of the stars at night, the leaves on the tree in wintertime, or the balls left at the bin at recess.
