Reviwed with Michael Dahl's One Big Building.
PreS-K. These Know Your Numbers titles are a pleasant departure from the cartoonish artwork and uninspiring design exhibited by many picture books in series. They feature inviting, bright illustrations that liven up a potentially dry topic--counting--with enticing, real-world situations: building a skyscraper, harvesting vegetables to make tossed salad for dinner. Though both books are well done, Building, perhaps, shines brightest. Little ones will find Ouren's bustling workers and vehicles in bold primary colors mesmerizing, and they'll love counting all 12 stories of the finished building, so tall that the horizontally formatted book must be rotated 90 degrees to accommodate a picture of it. The inclusion of a glossary, an index, and Web resources seems like overkill for an audience this young, but other extra features are more thoughtfully conceived. Sidebars depict each number in three different ways--as a word, a digit, and a series of dots--and the numerals hidden somewhere on each spread will keep children engaged. Jennifer Mattson
