Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The popular illustrator and greeting-card artist brings oddball humor and plenty of sassy energy to Boynton on Board, a quartet of concept board books. Each volume features a die-cut front cover framing a picture of its ebullient cartoon stars. A zany sensibility gives an extra bounce to the otherwise conventional counting book One, Two, Three! A similar silliness suffuses Dinosaurs , which explores opposites. In Barnyard , farm animals dance a boisterous, breathless, knee-slapping reel called, with great panache, by a fiddle-playing cow: ``Bow to the horse. / Bow to the cow. / Twirl with the pig if you know how.'' The rowdy crew in Monsters bursts in upon a mild-mannered hippo and makes ``the mess that monsters make,'' but returns to make amends. Fresh and buoyant, these books are good, clean fun. Ages 1-4. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Amusing as ever, Boynton has created a counting book that shares the joys of friends (hippos, cats, pigs, cows and more) in groups as well as the pleasure of a solitary walk by one. The pictures are funny and the scenes are quite different from those found in the usual counting books. A treat for all.

Read an Excerpt

ONE is good for a quiet walk.
TWO is right for a quiet talk.
THREE is good for having tea,
or for counting ONE TWO THREE.
And when you want to go explore,
the number you should have is FOUR.
FIVE works well for a ride in the car–
as long as the car ride isn't too far.

Sandra Boynton's 'Moo, Baa, La-La-La" is one of the most adorable books for a child. Owning that, we decided to try this one from her. The illustrations are adorable, as expected, but the words are really strange, and my 17 month old daughter isn't as captivated as she is with other books.

We own just about every Sandra Boynton and this is definitely on the top of my list (and my 15 month old son's list too). The illustrations are great and my son loves to have it read to him. I would highly recommend this book if you like her work.

I bought this book with the expectation that it would be one of those books I pick ever so often to familiarize my one year old with the concept of numbers and counting. Little did I know what an unbelievable hit it would be. We read it everyday. My daughter loves it, one year after and many more books added to the library she stills selects LOUD! LOUD! LOUD! for bedtime.
