PreSchool-K This charming effort has all the elements necessary for a successful counting book. Inviting illustrations work in lock-step with rhyming couplets. When one lonesome bear is joined by two friends, the fun begins. First, the cuddly three take a train ride to the sea. Then they are joined by additional playmates for a trip to a zoo, tree climbing and a party complete with sweet treats. Bathtime precedes bedtime and an opportunity to count all ten "sleepy heads" snugly settled in for the night. Each event is introduced by a bright numeral. The colorful facing watercolors work in perfect harmony with each verse which begs to be read aloud. Youngsters will undoubtedly respond to both the cadence of the text and the delightful detail and warmth of the drawings. Bucknall's clear, simple style is reminiscent of the work of Ann Rockwell. An appealing addition to the genre. Barbara Webber, Gordon-Barbour Elementary School Library, Gordonsville, Va.

Bucknall's verses and buoyant color pictures meld into a beguiling story cum object lesson in basic math for little children. "One bear all alone/ Sitting by the telephone." Dressed in his sharp overalls and striped shirt, the bear is seen leaning against a tall "1" on the opposite page. The phone doesn't ring, but the doorbell does, whereupon the solitary bear perks up to greet two friends. Here the number "2" is cleverly incorporated into the decorative stained-glass window of the door. The three bears meet others on holiday and enjoy an outing by the sea, at the zoo, in a meadow. Too many sweets upset their way home and, at last, to bed. The author-illustrator displays rare ingenuity in depicting each number from 1 through 10.
