This counting book depicts 10 mice who are out collecting food. They encounter obstacles on the way that cause them to drop some of it. As the story progresses, readers are asked to identify the numbers of cherries, acorns, ears of corn, etc., after each incident. However, the questions are occasionally confusing. For example, "How many pieces of food fell into the stream?" could be interpreted differently due to the placement of items. The questions are in small font and obscurely placed on each spread. The appealing mixed-media collages of scanned fabrics provide interesting patterns and textures, but are a bit busy for a counting book.
