Horn Book Review
A clever wordless counting book, in which ten animals ride in cars of a zoo train, suffers greatly from its conversion to a board book. The original oversized picture book easily accommodated the small train that recapitulated the numbers counted at the bottom of each spread; in the board book, the secondary train is practically microscopic, and the whole book is too complicated for its new intended audience. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
This board book combines simple counting with Carle's unusual illustrations of animals. Early learners will find the whimsical pictures appealing as they learn the beginning rudiments of numbers and counting.
