Review:
This is a pleasingly summery counting book that uses cool colors and birds, bees and flowers (among other garden denizens) to introduce the concept of numbers both large and small. Lest young listeners feel they’ve mastered the art of reckoning how many objects (from one to ten) there are on a given page, the artist provides unexpected challenges: twenty onions, thirty grapes, forty apples AND, for a grand finale, “two-hundred-thirty-three plump little peas.” This last task could while away a late-summer’s afternoon for motivated young numbers-crunchers.
