Kindergarten-Grade 1?A counting book for youngsters who need more practice with the numbers after 10. In this title, 11 bears spend a day at the beach, arriving with 10 umbrellas. The objects to be counted, arranged in rows for easy counting, and the numbers are followed by wordless double-page spreads of the bears' activities. There, the items-14 popsicles, 15 sandwiches, 16 shells, 17 fish, etc.- have been dispersed, making it a game to find and count them. In the case of the first 2 numbers, the 11 bears are shown setting up the umbrellas and swimming. The whimsical watercolor drawings are fun and realistic, portraying warm family scenes. A good selection for counting sections as well as useful for story times about the beach and summer.?Marsha McGrath, Clearwater Public Library, FL

Ages 3^-6. Doubling as an introduction to summertime fun, this lively counting book is unusual because it starts at 10 and ends at 20. Wordless, the book begins with 10 beach umbrellas and 11 bears in two clean, easy-to-count frames. Sprightly watercolor scenes of bearents, er . . . parents on the shore and kids in the water alternate with pages of objects such as pails and popsicles to count. Like many a satisfying summer day, this ends on a melancholy note. As the bears pack up to leave, their 20 magnificent sand castles are washed away by the sea. Pair this with Counting Our Way to Maine (1995), which also effectively combines setting and numbers. Julie Corsaro
