Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With short poems and lush paintings featuring all manner of bears, the Hagues help children learn numbers 1 through 12. The pictures are a pure delight. As with most of Hague's work, the illustrations are filled with lovely detail and quaint charm. Children will like the coziness of the book."—Booklist, starred review

"From the first bear to the last, the paintings are magnificently tinted and full of old-world charm."—Publishers Weekly

"A feast for the many who enjoy Hague's style."—Kirkus

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As a gift book with lavish pictures of quaint bears in antique settings, the Hagues' latest is a success. From the first bear to the last, the paintings are magnificently tinted and full of old world charm. But as a counting book, this is a muddle. Sometimes the bears are to be counted, sometimes they're playing or working with a set number of objects. For the young reader, it might be hard to pick out the four blue eggs in one picture, or the six shells in another, or the 10 clouds that look like fluffy lambs. The artist has hidden Roman numerals in the illustrations to tip off the reader, yet even some of these are difficult to find at first. While the text is lackluster, it does help ascertain what is being counted by which bear. Much work and care went into the creation and design of this book, but one is left wishing that author and artist had taken steps to make this the knock-out counting book it deserved to be. (47)
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Counting from one to twelve is depicted in muted pictures featuring bears. The numerals are hidden in the pictures and there are many opportunities to count other objects in the scenes in addition to the featured number. The small pictures are set on heavy cream pages and have an old-fashioned charm. The text rhymes and it reads aloud well; pretty soon kids will be repeating the refrains themselves, but only after caregivers have read them a few dozen times. 1999 (orig. 1986), Holt, Ages 2 to 4, $6.95.
