Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-This counting book has plenty of potential but doesn't quite add up. The concept is appealing, if predictable. Brief rhyming phrases create a singsong rhythm to describe the dawn of a new day: "Cat lies/Baby cries/Papa ties/Bird flies." At first glance, however, readers may wonder just what is to be counted (one cat/two tears/three laces/four birds). A second look reveals a helpful visual key. Double-page illustrations depict cozy and familiar activities of a (mostly) smiling extended family, such as greeting the mailman, preparing breakfast, and welcoming nine new kittens into the world. Rex's acrylic on acetate illustrations suit the minimal text. Flat, black-outlined paintings resemble coloring-book art, while smaller versions of items to be counted appear alongside a large painted numeral at the top or bottom of each page. Unfortunately, there are some jarring notes. The items to be counted for "Mailman hi's" (number 7) are intangible and, after the big "Surprise!," the children take two of the newborn kittens off to school.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
Kirkus Reviews
Effectively joining text and art, this book provides an abundance of repetition to reinforce the concept of numbers. Simple two-word phrases, all rhyming with sunrise, create a gentle poem that captures the hustle and bustle of the morning routine of a country family, "Sunrise./Cat lies./Baby cries." In addition, each facing page has an illustration of the featured object being counted (one cat, two tears, four birds, nine eggs, up to ten cats when the mother has nine kittens), the numeral, and its name. Rex's illustrations use warm earth tones of oranges and dusky blues to evoke the dawning day; the scenes contain an abundance of familiar items found in a busy household, from pictures taped to the refrigerator to dishes drying on the rack. The icons of the objects being counted offer an opportunity for children to indulge in a search-and-find game while strengthening their counting skills. Enticing on many levels, this book offers an edifying blend of entertainment and instruction. (Picture book. 3-6)
