Read full description of the books Count!:The color saturated pages and stylized animals pop out of this counting book. While appreciating the energy and excitement on each page I am not sure children will have the same enthusiasm given their lukewarm interest in Lois Ehlert's "Color Zoo" and "Moon Rope" which use similar eye popping colors.
Binding makes a difference and unfortunately my copy has cut off one of the giraffes making it difficult to find five animals. At the end the reader is invited to count by tens. This activity is continued with more lovely artwork but seems out of place in a picture book where children are learning to count from 1 to 10.

2) School Library Journal (March 1992)
3) Horn Book (September, 1992)
All reviewers rate this book for ages 2-5 so my attempt to generate interest among the K-2 crowd may have missed the developmental mark.
Booklist and School Library Journal also mention the potential for adding a physical interaction by mimicing the animal's movements during story time. This tip alone would make me look at this book twice and seriously consider ordering it.
