Artist Jo Waterhouse and Scottish Traveller Kelly Stewart have collaborated to produce a book of illustrations based on travelling cultures. The illustrations are based on the numbers 1 to 10. Families are encouraged to use them flexibly for counting or to prompt discussions about a range of things that may spark the interest of family members.
The illustrations are accompanied by some starter questions to encourage looking as well as a suggested follow-on activity. The pages intentionally limit the use of words to help overcome family literacy barriers.
The materials will be published as a book and distributed to Gypsy/Traveller families in 2022. For the online version of the resource visit Counting with pictures.
