Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Bright yellows and greens predominate in this mediocre counting book. It begins with one chickadee, two starlings, three cockatoos, and then switches to such unlikely creatures as hippos and monkeys. The animals are not from any one country or even from the same continent and since children will assume that the story is going to be about birds, there is no continuity. The illustrations are childish and awkward with strange proportions and the rhyming text is forced and unimaginative. One line reads, ``He stood and he stood and he stood and he stood.'' With all the wonderful, exciting counting books available, this one is unnecessary.-Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
