Bold, stylized graphics fill this board book that helps kids learn to count from 1 to 20. The objects are familiar-1 boat, 7 houses, 12 freckles, 17 stars and plenty more. The pictures also lend themselves to discussion and could easily be used to encourage storytelling. A companion book is entitled My Little ABC Book.

PreS-KThese two board books reinforce number and letter recognition through bright colors and engaging graphics. ABC devotes a single page to each letter of the alphabet; an uppercase letter appears in the upper left corner accompanied by a sample word (Airplane, Bee, Car) printed in bold black ink. The lowercase alphabet runs along the bottom of each page with the featured letter printed in red. The simple, stylized graphics, similar in appearance to the work of David Kirk, make the objects easy to identify. 123 presents numbers from 1-20. Numerals appear in a box in the upper left corner of the page next to the name of the item(s) to be counted. The objects include balloons, doughnuts, trees, and freckles. The charm of these simple concept books lies in their fun-filled illustrations.Maura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA
