School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-K-In Counting, Billy and Abigail find a number of objects around their house and yard. "How many eggs in the nest, Abigail?/One egg, Billy. A blue egg with speckles./Maybe the wee baby bird will have freckles!/Isn't this fun? We've counted to one!" In Good Morning, Billy gets up, brushes his teeth and hair, dresses, and eats breakfast. "But here's the most important thing I do to start my day-/I give my Mom a thank-you hug,/And then go out and play!" Abigail takes readers through the nighttime routine, including a bedtime story and a thank-you hug for Dad. The concepts are kid friendly and clear, but the story lines are weak and tedious. They have a relentlessly upbeat tone and are replete with exclamation points and smiling children and animals. The whimsical pastel watercolors have an old-fashioned look and the people resemble dolls that have come to life.-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
