Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Aimed at the very young, This jaunty and ingenious paper-over-board counting book introduces ``one yellow lion,'' ``two white swans,'' ``three gray squirrels'' and so on, until readers finally meet ``ten pink worms.'' The first two words appear on the left side of each spread; on the right is the numeral, a portion of which unexpectedly becomes part of the indicated creature(s) when the page is opened out. In Van Fleet's simple but playful renditions, the critters are unusually expressive, as ``eight brown bears'' nuzzle each other affectionately and some of the ``nine green alligators'' climb atop their pals while others nip at nearby tails. Even more frolicsome are the book's final spreads--``You know us all, from one to ten-- / Can you count us up again?'' The entire cast interacts amusingly on an accordion-style foldout; the reverse side displays a magnificent zoological pyramid topped by (what else?) one yellow lion. This classic ``less is more'' concept book features heavy stock and pages that fold out easily, making it well suited to tiny hands. Ages 2-up. (May)
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Counting, animal identification, color and the fun of the peek-a-boo format combine in One Yellow Lion. This nonfiction flap book for preschoolers presents a graphically simple, primary-colored number. Rather magically, the page turn transforms the number into a whole concept. The last page folds out and a rhyme allows children to hunt and count animals they've previously spotted.
School Library Journal
PreS-- A manipulatable concept book with sturdy, fold-out pages that should hold up in circulating collections. Each spread shows a large colored number opposite words that describe it, e.g., ``four'' and ``red'' are across from a red four. When the number page is unfolded, a whimsical picture of a matching number of animals is revealed and named. Whales, lizards, roosters, alligators, swans, worms, bears, cats, squirrels, and the one yellow lion who begins the game are featured. After the number ten, four fold-out panels show the whole crowd in two topsy-turvy beach scenes, and readers are invited to select, count, and name both animals and colors. Action-filled pictures and the different concept challenges offered will appeal to young children. An engaging selection. --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL

    Super Great Books for little ones

    We have read this book to our daughters and they both love it! It is a great way to teach them animals and shapes too. We use it as a gift often too.
