Let's Go Visiting
Sue Williams. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), $6.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-15-204638-5
A counting book set on a farm, Let's Go Visiting by Sue Williams, illus. by Julie Vivas, tracks an energetic child cavorting with a variety of animals in a repetitive rhyming text (""Let's go visiting. What do you say? One brown foal is ready to play""). ""Two red calves,"" ""three black kittens"" and finally ""six yellow puppies"" join the fray until, exhausted, everyone hits the hay. Vivas's vivacious images add pep to a text tailored for reading out loud.
