1 2 3 How Many Animals Can You See?
Boon's crayon-bright pictures introduce, one by one, an odd but lovable assortment of animals. First, Rabbit heads off to school; soon he's followed by Fox, then Duck, Otter, Mouse, Owl, Porcupine, Deer, Squirrel and finally Bear, who teaches the class to count. It's very simple fare; the very straightforward presentation should appeal to the youngest lap-sitter. Its dancing, sliding, juggling animals will make counters out of just about anyone. Ages 3-7.
