Martine Oborne is the author of several picture books.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-This simple, unpretentious story is essentially a counting book. The cover art sets the stage with a winning close-up of a baby holding a stuffed zebra. While the illustrations are done in a minimalist, cartoon style with smooth pastels and a soft, black outline, the infant's sunny smile and purity of expression radiate warmth and genuine delight. A short new phrase is introduced on each page: "Take one sweet smile,/two adorable eyes,/three big bananas," and thus builds page by page as the numbers advance. Mom packs up, "four clean diapers," puts baby in his jacket, "six yellow buttons," and strolls to the park where there are eight ducks, and nine strawberries result in "ten sticky fingers!" "Put them all together and what do you get?" The answer is, "One beautiful baby!" This is a perfect book for toddlers; it's bold, direct, and full of beguiling smiles. Youngsters will be counting without even being aware that they're learning.
