Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Counting books are plentiful, so there needs to be something to make one stand out from the others. In this case, the author has chosen a jungle setting and uses the animals that live there as part of the counting lesson. When one thinks of the jungle, a rich tangle of plants and lots of animals come to mind. Kids will count to ten and along the way meet a lizard, parrots, crocodiles, jaguars, bats, and more. The jungle is a colorful place and, while hot, it can also be quite damp. In the final spread it is raining and kids are asked to count the raindrops (there are forty). The animals have more of a cartoon look than realistic depictions. There is nothing outstanding about this counting book, but it is adequate. 2005, Northword, Ages 2 to 5.
—Marilyn Courtot
