Editorial Reviews

Sesame Street Parents
Many of the objects pictured here are familiar, such as toilet paper rolls, crushed soda cans, and storage boxes. But the photos bring out objects' everyday beauty. They capture everything from 1 red-combed rooster to 15 candy apples, then jump by 5s and 10s up to 100 spools of thread. Not only will this book help your child to master her numbers, it will also inspire to savor the simple things in her world.
Children's Literature - Dr. Beverly Kobrin
Tana Hoban arranged the items by ones and tens in her for-preschoolers-especially, Let's Count. The written word, Arabic numeral, and representative dots appear on the left-hand page; crisp photographs of the everyday items appear on the right.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Hoban has been looking through her camera's viewfinder for years, capturing in crisp black-and-white and vivid color photos everyday objects from new, innovative perspectives. Color, textures, sizes, opposites, and other ideas have flowed through her darkroom to create clear impressions. Here, she returns to numbers, inviting children to master counting from 1 to 15, and then, after jumping to 20, to leapfrog by 10s to 100. Each double-page spread is paired on the left by a huge yellow numeral, the word for the number in white uppercase, and row(s) of large white dots for reinforcement. On the right, is a stellar photo, framed in crisp white, of a corresponding accumulation of interesting objects, ranging from utilitarian rolls of paper towels to svelte mannequin heads modeling hats and sunglasses to a rainbow of colorful thread spools. A deep oceanic ultramarine provides a perfect background for photos, dots, numerals, and letters alike. Eye-catching and enjoyable from its front cover to its final page, and sure to be both as useful and used as its many predecessors.
