Demis Count Animals

Demi, Author Grosset & Dunlap $12.95 (48p) ISBN 978-0-448-18980-2
Counting from 1 to 20 is the main point of Demi's work, but there are other spreads on which readers can learn to count to 100 by fives or by twos. The book begins with a purple paisley rhino and quickly gallops past two floral elephants, three fuzzy ducklings, and four ferocious tigers. The colors in the pictures are almost psychedelic in intensity; children may find them brightly appealing or just plain garish. Some of the spreads work better than others; small animals are fitted into the bodies of larger animals, and the abstraction may prove confusing. A companion volume to Demi's Find the Animal ABC.
