One, Two, Buckle My Shoe: A Counting Nursery Rhyme

Salina Yoon, Random/Corey, $6.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-375-86479-7
Square die-cut windows offer clues about what comes next in this Big Top twist on the classic nursery rhyme. The opening spread places one purple square opposite a die-cut that frames two yellow circles. Turning the page reveals a polka-dotted clown's shoe, with the purple square becoming the buckle ("Buckle my shoe"). Later, five diamonds and six stars become part of circus elephants' colorful blankets, and gatefold flaps close out the book, showcasing a singing, ice skating "good fat hen." Watching abstract images turn into concrete shapes should please toddlers, and the inclusion of the words and numerals for each number cements the concept. Up to age 3. (Jan.)
