Overview

Can you count all the fun things in this perfect partner to The Alphabet Room?

Following the success of Child magazine award winner The Alphabet Room, Sara Pinto uses the same format but turns to numbers to present a most delightful story-within-the concept book. A resourceful pair of rabbits plant carrot seeds and celebrate in a garden that grows as the numbers add up. Twelve elements—one sun, two rabbits, three garden chairs, through twelve stars at night—all add up to 78 items and one engaging (and deceptively educational) day. Carrots are planted, weeds grow, hilarious garden gnomes find their sunglasses, Chinese lanterns are lit, and a good time is had by every bunny. A perfect toddler-friendly gift.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A sweetly goofy companion to The Alphabet Room (2003) uses the same lift-the-flap format. From "one sun" to "twelve stars," each opening places the numeral and written number on the left-hand page and the object(s) counted (both drawn and written) against a white garden gate on the right; lift the gate to see the increasingly zany garden. From a deceptively calm beginning, two rabbits arrange three lawn chairs, wield four garden tools, grow five sunflowers and so on. The orange-shirted rabbit is all industry, digging, planting and watering; its purple-shirted companion is not, playing with the hose and gooning around with the (seven) gnomes in cheerfully antic fashion. Not for beginning counters, the fine lines and busy compositions will be most enjoyed by preschoolers-and their grown-ups. (Novelty/picture book. 3-5)

    cute

    I homeschool Parish and Isaac, so I introduced this book to them during class. It came at a great time. I am trying to teach Isaac to recognize numbers. The illustrations are fun and bright. They read along with me. After reading it, I realized that it is essential a pop-out book. Behind the illustrations are more illustrations.
    The book is sturdy, also. Little ones tend to be rough on books. That is no problem with this durable treasure. This is one to keep in your children's library. Parish and Isaac think that all preschoolers will like it.
