Count your way through a baby’s busy day!
Count from 1 to 10 as this adorable baby takes a bath, gets dressed, and eats a snack. Through a day of splashing in puddles and playing with puppies, we count down from 10 to 1. By the end, baby is happy and tired—and dirty enough for another bath!
“You can’t miss with a wet baby fresh from the bath, making a gleeful escape covered only by a purple towel. . . . Fans of counting and bath time will be satisfied.” —The New York Times Book Review

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This adorable baby will charm kids as readers follow him through a day. He starts out with a bath and races naked out and into a room full of laundry. The scenes are full of items that are familiar and sometimes amusing, such as the expression on the cats' faces and the chaos of the boy's toy-strewn room. As the story progresses, he gets dressed, has a snack, and is ready to go outside. Since it is not a sunny day, he has on a jacket, frog boots, hat, and an umbrella circled with cute ducks. Each scene has the number from one to ten running down the side of the page; the number is highlighted as the requisite number of items are displayed. Toddlers will count five toes, eight buttons, and ten daffodils. Then the sequence counts down from ten to one with three wet pups and finally one muddy baby back in the tub again. The pictures are great fun, and do not miss the endpapers with the sequence of counting to ten and back again. While there are other books that also count to ten and back, this one is the one to purchase.
School Library Journal

The pictures tell the story in this charming counting book. They begin with a spread depicting a child tearing gleefully out of the bathroom and down the hall, pursued by his sassily dressed mama. The spirited toddler goes on to hide in the laundry room, try on a silly hat before getting dressed, pause for a toe-tickling session, eat his lunch, and then join his mother outside for some rainy-day play. In the yard, he finds worms to dig up and puddles to splash in. Naturally, the day comes full circle, with one naked child back in the bathtub. The concise text does little more than name items to count in each picture, starting with the youngster and counting up to 10 happy daffodils, and then back down to one again. This simplicity makes the book an appropriate choice to read aloud to toddlers. The joyous, jewel-toned watercolor illustrations, however, present a more complex and nuanced narrative. The many details will spark preschoolers' imaginations, extending the book's appeal to a much wider audience. The endpapers show an abbreviated version of the story, with a dotted line marking the boy's path through his busy day.

Kirkus Reviews
A day's activities negate the result of a toddler's morning bath in this delightful counting adventure. The counting begins with one naked baby, fresh from a bath, and continues as he gets dressed and has snack. Then it's out the door to explore the quintessential spring day (worms, puddles, flowers, sticks, birds), and the numbers descend, back to one muddy baby back in the bathtub. Gentle rhymes and familiar scenes make this good for sharing anytime. "Nine stones for stepping, / Eight robins race, / Seven worms wiggle, / Six chipmunks chase." Smith's illustrations are a feast for the eye and the brain, providing lots of linkages between number words and numerals. Vertical stripes list the numerals from one to ten-the featured number is a different color. Number words are also separated by color from the rest of the text. Young children will happily peruse each bright watercolor, appreciating the toddler's perspective and the up-close view of his comfortable world. The endpapers are a winding path from naked baby back to naked baby, with all the objects that were counted in between. A great addition to any collection. (Picture book. 1-5)
