PreSchool-Grade 2-- A collection of 23 traditional counting rhymes that nearly dance off the page--"Hinty, minty, cutty, corn,/ Apple seed and apple thorn" or "Wink, mink, a pepper drink,/ A baby bottle full of ink." The rhymes, a mix of the familiar ("As I was going to St. Ives") and the more obscure ("Mingle-dee, pingle-dee, clap-clap-clap-/ How many fingers do I hold in my lap?") are arranged in numerical order and set off by strong black borders. Ontani's graphics harken back to earlier picture books, such as The Real Mother Goose (Macmillan, 1916), with black - and - white checkered borders, strong pen outlines, and subdued watercolor washes. The format serves the traditional collection well. A worthy addition to the rich harvest of traditional rhyme collections already available. --Kathleen Whalin, formerly at Public Library of Columbus and Franklin County, OH
