A farm, first in summer and then winter, is the setting for counting rhymes from one to ten.

PreSchool-Grade 1 Simple four-line counting rhymes from one to ten (zero's there, too, but without a verse) take readers on a morning-to-night barnyard tour twice, once for a sunny summer day and once for a cold, snowy winter day. The first two lines of each quatrain focus on the animals representing the given number, while the second two comment on some aspect of nature in the setting. The pattern is worked out comfortably, and the verses are pleasant enough, but without the sparkle of Betsy Lewin's Cat Count (Dodd, 1981). The clear colors, clean line, and open composition of the illustrations convey a cheerful mood that's in keeping with the text. Uncluttered as the pictures are, they offer plenty of rural detail for young eyes to take in. The real weight of interpreting the contrast between the seasons falls to the pictures, and they contribute significantly to the book's calm charm.
