Numbers Do and Ears Hear are a pair of bilingual books for very young children written by Chu-Ren Huang & Kathleen Ahrens and illustrated by Marjorie Van Heerden. The stories are told in as few words as possible to encourage multiple readings, as it is through multiple readings that a child’s linguistic competence is developed as the brain scaffolds information from a previous reading onto the following reading. Published by Sun-ya Press in Hong Kong, these books are a wonderful example of international collaboration between two Asia-based writers and their South African illustrator
