From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-A fun, friendly variation on an old familiar counting rhyme. A big blue rabbit on the cover beckons readers over to the meadow. Bright colorful endpapers feature a patchwork of big squares with numbers and animals in them to identify. Then Old Mother Turtle and her little turtle one dig, Old Mother Fish and her little fishes two swim, and Old Mother Owl and her little owls three "Tu-whoo" until the rhyme is completed with Old Mother Rabbit and her little rabbits ten twitching. The last two full-page spreads provide opportunities for children to count all of the babies again. The pictures, dark heavy outline around the simple shapes that form the animals rendered in eye-popping colors, have the same appeal as Lucy Cousins's art. The acrylics with heavy obvious brush strokes have the look of finger painting. The movement and energy conveyed in the illustrations enhance the rhyme, and listeners may be inspired to act out the animal actions or chime in on the rhyme. The music is not included. Great fun for storytimes.-Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, OH

From Publishers Weekly:

In a lively variation on the familiar nursery rhyme, Cabrera (Eggday) offers an appealing and energetic landscape of boldly applied colors. Smudges reminiscent of finger painting dot the meadow, and each animal, outlined in thick black, stands out against its habitat. A pair of little goldfish with propeller fins swims in a blue-green sea, and seven froggies jump with Old Mother Frog in a "green grass heaven." The "little ratties four" gnaw all day by the old barn door, and 10 gray rabbits twitch in "a cozy wee den." To reinforce the counting lessons, Cabrera shows the entire barnyard scene and invites readers to find the animals once more ("Over in the meadow/ while the mothers are away,/ can you count the babies?/ They've all come out to play!"). A final page offers yet another refresher, as the animals cavort around their corresponding numeral. Learning to count--and even a bit about nature--is as easy as one, two, three in this merry meadow. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
