Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A playful plentitude of environmental lessons can be painlessly learned in Halsey's Something to Crow About upbeat, reverse counting book. Her worthwhile offering opens with a dozen crocodiles zooming down the highway: ``We're carpooling,'' calls one croc tyke from a car window, and indeed the 12 occupy only three vehicles. In a charmingly detailed cross-section of a house, 11 tigers are seen conserving water; subsequent spreads feature recycling bruins, beach-going turtles who ``take our cans home'' and, of course, the eponymous pandas, busily planting and nourishing saplings. The animal cast demonstrates considerable personality check out the condors, who manage to live up to their tough-guy image while ``collecting litter'', and Halsey has concocted some unexpected settings seven fetchingly costumed chimps change lightbulbs at a dressing-room mirror as they primp and preen. Colors are joyful, drawings are sharply outlined--and a vital message is vibrantly conveyed. Ages 4-7. Mar.
Children's Literature
How do 12 crocodiles work together to save the Earth? They carpool! Meanwhile, 11 tigers are turning off their faucets, and 10 otters are recycling their cans and bottles. Entirely lacking in preachiness, this book portrays environmentally responsible behavior as a fun and natural part of life. Recycling is part of a birthday picnic, and planting trees is a fun family outing. At the end of the book, a section explains each environmental strategy in more detail. Aimed at parents, it describes the impact and importance of each earth-friendly act. This is a book with many potential uses—it is a counting, animal and environmental book, all rolled into one. 2000 (orig. 1994), Aladdin Paperbacks/Simon & Schuster, $5.99. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Emily Schuster
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This cheerful introduction to protecting the environment combines a reverse counting book with illustrations showing conservation in action. Each double-page scene includes a group of animals from 12 to 1 engaging in activities that their human counterparts can emulate. For example, eight condors collect litter. Four rhinos use rechargeable batteries. The illustrations in colored pencil and pastels radiate good humor, concern, and a positive approach to problem solving. Youngest listeners can concentrate on counting the animals in each scene. A five-page section at the end gives a paragraph about each conservation method. A simple, positive look at a complex contemporary issue.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
