Alice Schertle is the author of more than 40 books for children, including many ALA Notable Books. She lives on a Christmas-tree farm in western Massachusetts.From Booklist:
PreS-K. As the title implies, this picture book offers a counting rhyme with an affectionate tone. A mother elephant addresses her little one as they engage in a variety of child-centered activities, such as marching with trumpet and drum, playing hide-and-seek, and riding on a little train. The numbers climb from 1 to 10 in the first half of the book, then descend until the end, when the little elephant goes to bed and to sleep. The rhythmic, rhyming verses are mildly engaging. Executed in a looser and more informal style than in many of McCully's previous books, the colorful artwork features playful, large-scale paintings of the elephants and, on every spread, details of two little mice intent on their own activities.
