Counting is always more fun when Grandpa helps! From one black bear to ten hairy warthogs, the young narrator and his grandpa count their way through a colorful and sometimes unusual zoo, encountering a wide assortment of friendly animals along the way. There are lions, zebras, and penguins, of course, but also chameleons and eagles . . . and even tarantulas! Playful, quirky illustrations put the loving relationship between the youthful grandfather and the grandson on proud display, while an upbeat, rhymed text full of sparkling verb sounds invites even the youngest readers and listeners to participate.

PreSchool-K—A little boy and his grandfather visit the zoo and count a variety of animals from one to 10. The couplets are simple but descriptive: "Baby gators snap at me./Sneaking, peeking.../We count 3." The digital gouache illustrations have vibrant colors, clean lines, and palpable texture. The characters have big, wide eyes that convey wonder, surprise, and joy, and many of the animals have playful expressions that welcome the humans. An engaging read-aloud for storytime and one-on-one sharing.—Linda M. Kenton, Pickleweed Public Library, San Rafael, CA
