Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
That active, adorable ursine, Jesse Bear, is back, engaged this time in a high-impact counting game. As he counts from one to 20, to the bouncy beat of Carlstrom's breathlessly energetic verse ("Turn the wheel/ And hold on tight./ Honk the horn/ And blink the light./ Thumping, bumping/ Slammingbam!/ Bumper cars/ Are in a jam"), Jesse is sure to entertain and edify his legions of fans. From one to 10, different settings serve as a means to number fun: a photo booth (three faces in a picture), a beach (five live crabs), an evening sky (seven stars). Each of these digits is treated to its own poem, while numbers 11 through 20 (12 hats, 15 balls, etc.) are featured more simply on smaller, picture-packed panels in the last part of the book. Degen's detailed pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations offer readers plenty to peruse, equally conveying the energy and enthusiasm of the text. Ages 2-6. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Another gentle, whimsical story (the sixth) about Jesse Bear. This is a fairly good counting book, if a bit cluttered with detail at times. Carlstrom provides a short verse for the numbers 1 to 10, which Degen illustrates with a double-page, pen, ink, and watercolor picture. Jesse counts stars, crabs on the beach, and bubbles, among other things. The verses are simple yet lively, perfectly matched with the brightly colored, busy artwork. The numbers 11 through 20 are also briefly noted. This simple concept book also makes a fine read-aloud.Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
Kirkus Reviews
Carlstrom and Degen team up for their sixth entry in a beloved series. Cuddly Jesse and his furry family effortlessly explore numbers 1-20 while enjoying simple pleasures that are especially sweet to preschoolers. Carlstrom is at her jaunty best with a series of rhymes for the first ten numbers: In "Happy Hopping Two Shoes," Jesse is "Jumping high,Landing loud.New shoes dancing,New shoes proud." Much more is celebrated, including instant photos of the family of "We three bears," four "thumping, bumping" bumper cars, "five alive" crabs skittering across the sandy beach, seven stars counted with Daddy, up to "Ten and Back Again" is especially appealing, with Jesse's careful enumeration of rocks: "But nine I'll give to Mommy soon,And tenWill be my little moon." Addition is the focus of the final spreads ending with the delicious prospect of "19 and one more are 20," as in 20 ice-cream cones. Degen's now-familiar watercolors are as snug as ever.
