Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
Showing trucks engaged in a myriad of activities is a great concept for a counting pop-up book but this one is poorly designed. There are so many things crammed onto each page that the actual counting subjects are often hard to distinguish. For example, seven loaders, eight dump trucks and nine steamrollers fill two side by side pages. Although the right page extends out a few inches, there still is not enough room to clearly depict all these trucks and the work that they are doing. The excessive visual stimulation is likely to frustrate children who are learning to count. It hampers, rather than assists, teaching them the progression of numbers one through ten. The illustrations may appeal to older children who are more adept at problem solving and puzzles. Unfortunately, the book is not appropriate for its intended audience.
