Ages 2-6. In another joyful concept book for the very young child, the Anholts combine a simple rhyming text with lots of small, detailed, realistic line and watercolor illustrations. This is a counting book that also introduces size, color, days of the week, and parts of the body (1 nose, 2 eyes, 10 fingers, 1 tummy). Most of the sets are from 1 to 10, but at the end, everything opens out to "100 lovely things to eat" and then "a million stars above my street." The unforced rhymes express the pleasure of words and their sound; the voice and point of view are the child's Hazel RochmanFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-This cheery concept book in rhyme includes much more than just numbers. Children are invited to count groups of objects arranged by size, color, letters, and days of the week as they visit a playground, farmyard, backyard, and go on a journey. Bright, whimsical illustrations with lots of detail add zest to this appealing offering, which is more attractive and useful than many in its genre.
