Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–The title says it all. Fox and Thomas draw viewers in through catchy phrases and amusing pictures of goats that appear in a variety of shapes, sizes, and numbers. As they romp across the bright, colorful pages, their antics will make children giggle; more importantly, the text encourages listeners to look carefully at what is happening. For example, the number of goats increases as the pages turn, and the author's questions concerning them will motivate viewers to examine the images and figure out the answers. A clever counting lesson.–Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MAα(c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

Bright electric colors (tennis-ball green, sky blue, and sunny yellow) outlined in thick black create just the right look to attract very young readers, who are also often just learning to count. The silly-looking, appealing cartoon goats sport more natural colors in shades of brown, and they do goaty things, such as eat inedible stuff, but beyond that, reality’s suspended, and imagination takes over. These goats play trumpets, fly planes, throw snowballs, and more. Scenes showing a goat doing something a kid might be familiar with alternate with spreads asking listeners to count a specific set of goats doing a related activity (“Here we see an airport goat looking for her cases. But can we count the PILOT goats with goggles on their faces?”). This is a bit more challenging than some counting books; beginning counters may not yet be familiar with the concept of adjectives, which indicate which goats are to be tallied. But this adds to the appeal, providing a fun learning opportunity for kids with varying skill sets. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Diane Foote

A delightful read! Not only is this a darling book with engaging illustrations it offers so many learning opportunities. Obviously there is counting, but most importantly there are a variety of actions, location words and much more to help your little one improve on their language skills. It is sure to be a favorite!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J.Prather TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 11, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book brings together two of my favorite author/illustrators! The result is quirky and entertaining, sure to bring smiles to the preschool set while at the same time teaching some new language and taking a rather offbeat look at counting. This is probably not the book to use if you are interested in teaching numbers to a beginner. The actual numbers are never seen. The reader is given the opportunity to count goats that are described in the form of questions: "But can we count the pilot goats with goggles on their faces?" There's a new adjective introduced with every new set of goats. We have rowdy goats, cheering goats, rescued goats, mountain goats, city goats, little goats, and even airport goats. These goats are everywhere! They are chewing on tables, going over bridges, and crossing rivers.

This is a great choice for group sharing - there's a multitude of possibilities for audience interaction and also for one on one enjoyment. Thomas' trademark bright cartoon illustrations only further add to the hilarity of the different situations these goats find themselves in. I love one of the final spreads showing the goats all peeking over the bottom of the page. Thomas certainly has a gift for making kid friendly characters. Who wouldn't want to see goats playing the trumpet? Just a ton of fun and alot of educational value. Recommended.

This is a cute book for the preschool set. Cute, rhyming story encourages little readers to reach out and count. My 3 year old enjoyed it a lot!

This children's author is less known than many, but I think this is a wonderful counting book. The goats are funny and the kids (I recommend preschool age) just love it!
