Rabbit and Chicken Count Eggs

Rabbit and Chicken Count Eggs

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A zoological odd couple lifts this beginning board book quartet above the norm. Vitality radiates from the covers, which, designed like rustic wooden fences, depict Rabbit peering through variously shaped diecut openings at his pal. Among their other simple virtues, the characters present a subtle message of helping a friend--three of these four disarming titles open with one protagonist asking the other for assistance (no help is needed for the fourth--a frisky game of hide-and-seek). The activities are suitably straightforward--and limited to the eponymous duo--with the counting perhaps scoring highest marks for fun. When questioned by Chicken about the number of boots, buckets, apples and eggs, the enthusiastic--if somewhat vague--Rabbit extends his front paws and exclaims, ``This many!'' Turk's stars are appealingly expressive and her colors soothing; the entire effect of the foursome, in fact, is a beguiling blend of unaffected sweetness with a modicum of early education. Ages 1-3. (Apr.)

PreS-- Two whimsical characters explore basic concepts. In Count Eggs , the friends count items around the farmyard. In Find a Box , Rabbit looks for a nesting spot for Chicken, but has trouble locating one the right size; in Play Hide and Seek , Chicken crouches behind, between, under, and inside objects while Rabbit searches for her. In Play with Colors , the two paint Easter eggs and compare the hues to those they see in nature. Texts are minimal and somewhat flat. The die-cut covers highlight the humorous watercolor illustrations. Fair-to-middling offerings. --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
