Even if you already boast a mastery of counting to ten, a refresher course is never a bad idea—particularly when it's this beautiful. Marion Bataille's Numero is a pop-up counting book, chronicling the numbers one to ten with simplistic layered shapes that are sure to entertain and educate kids, while also inspiring designers.

Available mid-October for just $15, Numero is not only the perfect way to prep kids for kindergarten, it also helps instill an appreciation for good design which will be important once crayons and coloring become an important part of their curriculum. [Chronicle Books via Cool Hunting]
