Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-- Anyone with an appreciation for the nostalgia of Smith's charming illustrations will like the quaint scenes in this simple counting book. Although preschoolers don't harbor these sentiments, chances are they will enjoy the old-fashioned look and the simplicity of the rhyming text. Narrow frames with scrolled corners, drawn in pastel colors on creamy paper, provide borders for the four-line verse on the left and the illustration on the right, with the objects to be counted--one through ten--easily identified. Each page of the text has the appropriate numeral centered above the verse; unfortunately, they are ornate and too difficult for those just learning to recognize numbers. No razzamatazz, no hard sell, but children will respond to the quietude exuding from the pages. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NB
