Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Beverly Kobrin
Youngsters can learn to count from one to ten in Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Tagalog, and six other languages from Lezlie Evans' Can You Count Ten Toes? Ms. Evans provides transliterations and pronunciation guides for the numerals, which are printed in both Arabic and each language's alphabet or ideogram.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A fun and challenging concept book. Each two-page spread is introduced by a rhyme: Can you count the different coins/spread across the table?/Speaking now in Zulu, try to/count them, if youre able and includes the words for the numerals from 1 to 10 in a different language: Japanese, Russian, Korean, Hindi, Hebrew, Chinese, French, Tagalog, and Spanish. The gouache cartoon illustrations contain a playful display of the things being enumerated and feature a child from that culture interacting with a smiling cat. An outline map of the continents shows where each language is spoken. In addition to introducing languages, this book also provides a glimpse at other cultures. While younger children will enjoy sharing it with an adult, it is also suitable for beginning readers, who will peruse it at their own speed and memorize the words along the way.JoAnn Jonas, New York Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Can You Count Ten Toes? (32 pp.; Mar.; 0-395-90499-4): Counting is a good introduction to new languages, and Evans (Snow Dance, 1997) has chosen a nice mix for her exercises from 1-10, including French, Spanish, Zulu, Russian, Chinese, Hebrew, and Hindi. The numerals appear next to their names in their original languages as well as in transliteration and phonetically. Roche's perky illustrations provide ten objects in each picture to be counted, from toes to lightning bugs. A map at the end of the book shows, with color-coded dots, the locations in the world where these languages are spoken. (Picture book. 4-8) .
From the Publisher
In this amusing and informative counting book, each language's original characters, transliterations, and phonetic spellings are provided, giving the reader a three-dimensional approach to each set of numbers. Clean, bright, action-filled illustrations help convey the culture of each language. A useful map and language key is included at the back.
