Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
When it's time for kids to count off, connect them to books by the creative artists whose numerical excursions are as satisfyingly aesthetic as they are arithmetic. For example...en route from one to ten, the littlest counters-and friends of any age-will be enchanted by Lois Ehlert's vibrant collages. With each flip of the page, a plain pilot fish leads the way to bigger-by-one schools of brilliantly colored, dayglo- accented fish, whose diecut eyes cleverly add another dimension to the journey. Ms. Ehlert's stylized images depict fish both real and imaginary - the former identified on the book jacket, in case you wondered. Provide youngsters scissors and an assortment of brightly colored paper and suggest they try their hand at similar collages.

Being read to a nine month old who gets very excited about the fish,the colors, and the way it is read as it allows for lots of animation and teaching about color, shapes, and activities as we read through. He loves to put his little fingers in the eye holes !!!

The pictures are beautifully illustrated to capture a young child's attention. It is a great book for learning not only numbers as you add the eyes, but colors also.

This is a really good counting book. My son is facinated with any kind of fish, so he really loves it. The only down side to the book is that the fish eyes are punched out of the paper on each page--my son loves to put his finger in the holes, which can tear easily.

Come on a journey deep at sea, to count the many fish we¿ll see. This engaging board book captures baby¿s attention with brilliant colors and simple illustrations. The fish¿s eyes are inventively ¿cut-out¿ drawing added interest to the already vivid images. What¿s more, Ehlert includes addition lessons cleverly disguised in the corners of the pages to encourage simple mathematics for older children. Definitely a keeper!

We got this book for Christmas and my 11 month old son LOVES it. He likes the bright colors and laughs everytime I read it. I like it because its interesting enough for babies but yet when he gets older it will be a fun counting book.
