Eminent photographer Art Wolfe's images of moose, cougars, mallards, and sea lions are a wonderful visual aid for children learning to count. Wolfe draws inspiration from his home region, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, but the crisp photographs of bald eagles, sea otters, scallop shells, and trumpeter swans have a universal appeal. While the images engage young readers, Andrea Helman's short, accessible text introduces the animals with fun facts, so children learn without even realizing it.

Ages 4^-7. With so many counting books competing for a relatively small market, authors and illustrators have had to think of ways to distinguish their book from the rest of the pack. This 1^-20 counting book uses captivating color photographs and brief, informative text to acquaint youngsters with wildlife and other living and nonliving things native to the Pacific Northwest. The numbers are large and prominently positioned and a few passages do invite the reader to count items, but the counting often takes a backseat to science as Helman informs us about the effect of water erosion on river rocks, how to know when salal berries are ready to eat, and the habits and characteristics of such creatures as musk ox, Bohemian waxwings, and bald eagles. This attractive picture book will be useful in teaching both math and science. Lauren Peterson
