Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Using flaps and textures, Yoon's smart counting book also introduces some common animals and emphasizes asking questions. The book's title serves as its opening line, appearing opposite a number one imbued with sufficient elephantine characteristics (a stumpy trunk, gray skin and broad ear) to clue readers in to what animal waits behind the flap. Two flocked cows and six chickens with foil combs feature on subsequent flaps, as questions and answers (“Which dinosaur is the closest relative of the chicken? The Tyrannosaurus Rex!”) lend added interest throughout. Ages 1–4. (Oct.)
