Amazingly beautiful book. Children practice counting to 10 while counting the wild animals. The pictures will keep the adults' attention because they are soooo marvelous.
Great pictures, my Kindergarten class wanted to read it again. Shows habitats all over the world, and how we all need water.
A fun counting and hidden picture book; it isn't the Eleventh Hour, but it's a good one!
I read it to my Kindergarten class, they loved it, a 2nd grade class didn't get the same thrill. As with all of G.B.'s books, there's a lot going on in the pictures that is missed as a read-aloud (and even reading alone, on this my 8th or so perusal, I just noticed animals at the top and bottom of each page that I had never seen before. Along the same line as Gary Larson and his cows, and Mark Teague and his pigs, Base seems to have a strange fascination with frogs wearing human clothes.
