Here's a sampling of how our Number Book turned out

Cover page of Number Book

Three people:
the number 3

The four elements (fire, air, water, earth):
the number 4

Seven colors of the rainbow:
the number 7

A spider (8 legs) in her web:
the number 8

This became an elaborate story! It involved three witches, three princes (each wearing crowns with 3 points) who had money bags each holding 3 coins... So, getting to nine (and we did during the creation of this drawing!) involves using various combinations of multiples of 3...
the number 9

Here, S. did coin rubbings of 10 pennies, plus a dime,
and then drew the border containing 10 blocks...
the number 10
