Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-A simple counting title in board-book format. Keats's familiar collage technique is used effectively to depict familiar objects from one bright red sun to ten playful dachshunds. The illustrations, first published as a number chart (Scholastic, l968), feature bold colors against contrasting backgrounds. An attractively designed book, perfect for toddlers.-Sally R.

Ezra Jack Keats (1916–1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children’s classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats’ legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter—the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.
