Follow the Line

Written by Laura Ljungkvist, Follow the Line is the journey of a line from the city to the country, from the sky to the ocean, from morning until night. Each scene contains questions designed to get children counting, thinking and observing. Young counters will enjoy following the very same line all the way through the book, from front to back.

Steven Heller in reviewing for the New York Times said that "Ljungkvist designed this book as a series of tableaus that allow readers to take a long journey, following an almost continuous linear thread as it moves from city to country, becoming everything from buildings and cars to trees and bushes, as well as all the flora and fauna in between...A brief narrative text set in typewriter type appears between the various figures. There are also enough empty visual and imaginative spaces to be filled in by young readers and their parents". To read his complete review click here.

Follow the Line is 32 pages long and has a recommended enjoyment age of 3+.
