Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know live lions marched in the Macy's Day Parades of 1925 and 1926? Or that L. Frank Baum, author of The Wizard Of Oz, was born in New York State? Or that baseballs were first manufactured in a converted barn in Johnstown, New York? Did you know there are 108 stitches in a baseball while only 88 in a softball? Are you surprised to learn these facts from a counting book? This smart and witty counting book appeals to both the youngest reader with colorful illustrations and numbers, while older readers will enjoy learning tidbits about New York State. The book counts one through ten and then jumps in increments of ten up to one hundred. This is a must have book for both early elementary school teachers and as a resource for older elementary school librarians. 2005, Sleeping Bear Press, Ages 4 to 8.
—Mindy Hardwick
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-This picture book counts its way through New York history, exploring little-known facts along the way. Numbers 1 through 12 each get a page or a spread, with small-type sidebars offering more in-depth coverage of the topics presented. The book then switches to counting by 10s, going from 20 up to 100 in the same format. This title will work well for those needing extra details and facts for reports. For instance, readers learn that the term "pie la mode" was coined by a professor dining at the Hotel Cambridge in Cambridge, NY. Other local facts include information on the Rockettes, L. Frank Baum, and Grandma Moses. Other than on the cover, Times Square does not appear in the book. The illustrations, rendered in warm watercolor tones, complement the brief histories given in the text.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
