What could be more fun than playing with your food? If you're a toddler, not much. So this simple counting book based on the well-loved breakfast cereal has a lot going for it before even being opened, and once it is cracked open, it doesn't disappoint. Big, colorful numerals stand out boldly on a white background, framed by more bright colors. Familiar little toasty O's and luscious-looking pieces of fruit match the number specified on each page: three Cheerios, three strawberries, and a little blurb--"Count O's here/ Say one, two, three!"--all support learning the number 3. One through 10 all share this format; the simplified 11 to 19 appear on a veritable fruit salad of a page, and the climactic 20 claims its own page opposite: "Eat twenty O's when the counting is done!"
Make breakfast time count with this tasty little board book!

(Baby to preschool) --Emilie CoulterFrom Booklist:
Ages 2^-4. Food is a major part of every toddler's day, and food is the focus here: holding it, playing with it, eating it, and, also, counting it, so that numbers become a natural part of breakfast, and concepts are learned through crunchy physical facts. The Cheerios trade name may worry some parents, but even the child who prefers eating cornflakes will enjoy counting and grouping the small, firm grainy circles. Clear, colorful pictures with lots of white space show a big numeral and individual pieces of cereal on each page, first from 1 to 10, then in groups of 10, up to 100. In addition, the handsome colored margins include fruits and slices of fruit for each number. There is an occasional forced rhyme, but the words are simple and direct. In fact, the text is almost irrelevant; no adults need specific words to tell them how to count and interact ("You can count cereal. You're counting just fine. See seven. Here are eight"). As young preschoolers munch and play and tally, they will find a delicious world they recognize in a book. Hazel Rochman
