Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This counting board book honors the state of its origin—Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes. Each page counts up from 1 to 10, using creatures associated with lake habitat. While there is no narrative as such, there is a natural sequence as the last pages reference the end of the day. The brightly-colored pictures have a playful cartoon feel while rhyme and alliteration give a catchy tone to the simple text. It is likely toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy this book long before they really count, while the references to less familiar creatures such as otters or terms like "creep" offer a playful way to expand a young child's vocabulary. This title is part of the "You Can Count" series. 2005, Northwood Books, Ages 1 to 5.
