The crisp, colorful illustrations are what drives this unique counting book. Instead of counting quantities of animals, author Christopher Wormell counts numbers of items on (or associated with) animals (20 barnacle shells, 2 camel humps, 14 white rings on a lemur). This book appeals to a very large audience and could easily be incorporated into science or math instruction.

This counting book features one animal and one number per page. 1 rhinoceros horn, 7 black spots on a lady bug, and so forth, up to 20. The illustrations are striking with large margins and heavy black lines. At the end of the book, each animal featured is given a biography. These beautiful illustrations give a sense of depth and class rarely found in children's books, with stylized but realistic depictions of animals.

outstanding picture book, counting to 20, broad range--simple text, bold colors and type; back pages give info on animals for older readers. OUTSTANDING.
