Synopses & Reviews
Let's Count to 100 comprises 11 bright panoramas, each featuring a delightful assortment of 100 different objects. Readers are invited to count the items and are also challenged to find specific details, such as a mouse with a red bow or a lone rabbit amid a giant flock of sheep. This book is packed with appealing images of children, fish, cats, moles and other cute critters -- no two of which are alike -- and readers will enjoy the many different moods and expressions on display. Each spread is also full of hidden dramas youngsters will love discovering for themselves, such as a hungry piranha poised to take a nibble of an elephant's pink trunk. Kids will also like spotting how each scene, such as a meandering stream or a bustling cityscape, visually connects to the one that came before and the one that follows.
"Every spread in this high-energy counting book contains 100 cartoon people, objects, or animals, as Sebe provides enthusiastic prompts: 'There are 100 sheep... and 1 rabbit! (Do you see him?'). Conversations and interactions between the creatures add to the fun: in a scene in which 100 fish swim in a river, a pink elephant sticks its trunk into the water, and a toothy, yellow fish goes in for a bite ('Bon appÃ©tit!' says another). With much to discover, a wry sense of humor, and a clean aesthetic, it's a lively pick for readers ready for more adventurous counting challenges. Ages 3 7. (Aug.)"
