School Library Journal Review

PreS-K When a lone duck paddling across the clear blue water of a pond observes two cars filled with three dogs, four boys and five girls who have come for a picnic, he quickly swims to the lower corner of the picture and crawls into the border. From this vantage point, he watches as the children play with balls, sail toy boats and, with two adults, eat a picnic lunch. When the wind blows billowy clouds and rain into the picture, causing the people to pack up and leave, the duck returns safely to his pond, where he is joined by nine of his friends. This is a counting book extraordinaire. At the bottom of each page a large numeral is shown in a box along with the name of the object featured in the illustration. The objects (cars, balls, boats, etc.) also appear in boxes at the top or bottom of the page. Thus, each illustration offers two chances to count the objects, as well as the opportunity to match each boxed object with its counterpart in the picture. Single- and double-page illustrations of charming animals and children done in bright pastels are outlined and detailed in red ink. The book has the semblance of a photo album, for each illustration appears to be attached with corners to its gray-green border. The result is an imaginative wordless story book that will delight children young and old as it reinforces counting skills.
