A Number of Dinosaurs: A Pop-Up Counting Book

by Paul Stickland, Henrietta Stickland
 
Adorable, colorful little dinosaurs keep adding up in this delightful pop-up book by best-selling author-illustrators Paul and Henrietta Stickland. Each spread features a big, bright number right in the center that practically pops right out of the book, making it easy for kids to see how many dinos there are on the pages. As the numbers get bigger, so does the pop-up

Overview

Adorable, colorful little dinosaurs keep adding up in this delightful pop-up book by best-selling author-illustrators Paul and Henrietta Stickland. Each spread features a big, bright number right in the center that practically pops right out of the book, making it easy for kids to see how many dinos there are on the pages. As the numbers get bigger, so does the pop-up, reaching a grand finale with a huge brilliant 10!

And, because these dinosaurs are the creations of Paul Stickland (Dinosaur Roar!), they’re amusing, playful, and very cute—climbing on the numbers, hiding behind them, and having an all-around good time. Learning to count has never been so much fun!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—The concept is simple and repetitive: "One little dinosaur.../plus one more, makes...two little dinosaurs," and so forth to 10. This novelty pop-up book features spreads with a very large foldout paper numeral, and as readers turn the pages, they count cuddly, colorful dinosaurs. As the numbers ascend, the pop-ups become increasing larger, and soon the creatures spill off the page. Though impressive, this foldout design will not last long in library collections.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
A bevy of fancifully colored and benignly visaged little dinosaurs counts up from one to 10. More an adjunct of the Sticklands' other books (Dinosaur Roar, 1994, etc.) than a stand-alone of any kind, it offers little text and even littler story, but a basic lesson in addition helps to compensate. "One little dinosaur... / plus one more, makes... two little dinosaurs..." and so on. Rising from the middle of each spread is a pop-up numeral. It doesn't seem as though there's much to this, but readers will notice as they advance through the pages that the size of the numerals is increasing, forcing the accumulating dinosaurs into the margins until both 10 and the dinosaurs explode from the gutter. This has immediate and obvious appeal to dinosaur-loving preschoolers, who won't notice there's any education going on. (Pop-up. 3-6)
