Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-Soft, dreamy, oil and digital illustrations are the strength of this counting book. Starting with 12 doves cooing in a stable, the simple text counts down in rhyming couplets. For example, "8 shepherds wrapped in woolen robes/watch over their flock by night./7 soft sheep are still awake/and see the stars grow bright." Finally, "2 parents look with tender love/upon a manger bed/at 1 small baby lying there/with straw to pillow his head." The sweet animals have a greeting-card quality, the rhymes are uninspired, and the stable looks like a nice little vacation cottage with its glowing windows and palm trees.-Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
