Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Numbers one to ten, then tens to 50, are teamed with animals portrayed in Fleming's exuberant, bright illustrations. Ages 2-6. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Bright, bold animals from one gnu to ten lizards cavort across the pages of this board book version of Fleming's highly successful picture book. At the end, kids are encouraged to "Count again!" and surely they will. 1997 (orig.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Board books provide an affordable answer for parents who want their children to enjoy books. These books generally have thick pages that facilitate page turning and have plastic-coatings to protect them from the wear and tear of active baby life. Well-known concepts books are also appearing in this format, and little ones will love the graphically bold Count! 1997 orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-- A fresh, upbeat concept book. Lizards, giraffes, toucans, butterflies are available for counting--if only they'll hold still long enough! Fuchsias and oranges, teals and purples roll over the pages blending into each other in Fleming's beautiful couched paper with handcut-stencil illustrations. Her explosions of color and motion are captivating and energizing. When the text says, ``Wiggle, worms!,'' readers can see them slithering right off the page. Double-page spreads feature numbers from 1 to 10, as well as 20, 30, 40, and 50. Each includes its numeral and word in English, slashes representing its quantity, and countable creatures along with a brief salutation or command, such as ``Line up, lizards!'' or ``Stretch, giraffes!'' The more children who Count! under the influence of this title's breezy mood, the better. Very bright, very hip! --Liza Bliss, formerly at Leominster Public Library, MA
From the Publisher
"The substance here is traditional—numbers from one to ten introduced with animals to count; the idea extended tens to 50—but the presentation is outstanding. . . . Fashioned with care, intelligence, and artistry—a delight."—Kirkus (pointer)

"The resounding vitality and immediacy of this selection turn a counting lesson into an exhilarating experience." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A fresh, upbeat concept book. . . . Very bright, very hip!"—School Library Journal (starred review)
