Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cabrera's (Old MacDonald Had a Farm) version of this familiar schoolyard song takes readers all the way up through the number 20, as her rabbit heroine helps some animals get ready for a big party. Though the rhymes are occasionally a stretch (“15, 16, in the kitchen”),the lively images, thick with paint strokes, create a cheerful atmosphere. Additionally, the opening challenge to find four small chicks on each spread will keep readers entertained as they read along. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
First published in Great Britain, this title is another in a series of books updating old, familiar nursery rhymes. The theme of the story is a surprise birthday party where some piglets, chicks, a rabbit, and Mother Hen come together for a happy time that includes enough balloons to count to twenty. Youngsters are also instructed to find the four hidden chicks in each of the double page spreads. The rhyme for every two numbers is printed in large, bold type and accompanied by a bright, childlike illustration done with strong brush strokes that are outlined in black. Some of the pages contain additional remarks made by the animals. Youngsters may have to be introduced to some of the vocabulary, as words like "delve" and "a-snortin'" may not be familiar to them. While this is entertaining, it is not really necessary to add it to a collection that already contains other versions of this traditional rhyme. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
