All the animals are busy lending a hand in the garden in this lively numbers book
The parrots are pulling up carrots, the bears are picking pears, and a swarm of bees are pruning the trees with their miniature shears. Julia Donaldson's whimsical rhymes and Nick Sharratt's hilarious illustrations make this early introduction to animals, the outdoors, and gardening a delight to share out loud. With plenty to giggle at on every page, counting—or gardening—has never been so much fun!

PreS-Gr 1–From “One mole digging a hole” to “Ten bees pruning trees,” backyard creatures busily tend to a garden. Brightly colored numerals appear in the middle of the brief rhyming sentences, along with the corresponding number of animals to count. On the facing pages, Sharratt's vivid color cartoons are bustling with activity. Snakes rake the soil, parrots pick a wheelbarrow full of carrots, and crows water the lettuce patch. The variety of textures, shapes, and patterns in the illustrations adds to the liveliness. The final pages show all the gardeners relaxing in the sun, offering another opportunity for counting fun.–Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2010.
