Ten children live in one house and are about to move across the street to another house. One child at a time moves, taking something with him or her. We see the outside and inside of both houses and keep track. There are cutaway windows through which some children peek. Although the book is wordless, we find ourselves answering questions: Who's gone? How many are gone? All the combinations of ten are involved. Once through the book we can read it backwards for new questions with new answers.
As always in Anno's math picture books, there is a note to adults about other ways to develop the concepts touched upon in the book.
