Night-Time Numbers: A Scary Counting Bookby Susan L Roth
Roth uses a variety of papers and fabrics to make the clever, intricate collages that accompany her text. The repetitive rhyme asks readers, What can you see ? on the rooftops, in the window, and around the house tonight. The reply is I can see one monster in the pale moonlight, two dragons in the pale moonlight, etc. The last spread includes an angel to keep me safe and sound. Some of the collage creatures could be frightening to little ones, although the constant presence of the mother with the child in every picture is reassuring. Older children will admire the artwork and enjoy identifying the different materials used to make the pictures. They will delight in counting the monsters from 1 to 10 and echoing the rhythmic chant as it is read to them. An unusual book that will fascinate youngsters. - School Library Journal. Narrated by Anthony Call (Star Trek, The Twilight Zone).
