That was “1, 2, 3, The Tapestry I See! — Do  You Know the Rainbow?” — the second of what I plan on being a series of “The Gnomestead Tapestry” intended for the younger set. This one is about colours! The plan is that they’ll all have “1, 2, 3, The Tapestry I See!” on the title page so you can more easily find them.

I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to. Remember if your friends tell friends soon hundreds will have read these.

That was “1, 2, 3, The Tapestry I See!” — the first of what I plan on being a series of “The Gnomestead Tapestry” intended for the younger set. Although this one was a counting story future ones will have other subjects. The plan is that they’ll all have “1, 2, 3, The Tapestry I See!” on the title page so you can more easily find them.

For you older wizzes out there, how many know how to add a series of numbers like 1-10 swiftly? Or 1-1000?

I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to. Remember if your friends tell friends soon hundreds will have read these.
