One, Two, Tree!

Publisher: Tara Publishing

This is an unusual and creative counting book. A visually stunning read-aloud book that invites young children to count the improbable number of animals that clamber up an ever-expanding tree. Illustrated with art from the Gond tribal tradition of central India, 'One, Two, Tree!' is a number book, a picture book, a nursery rhyme and a fable about living together.

From the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India, the Gonds are a community of highly visual people.
