Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Baby/Toddler—Two classic Golden Books are now available in durable board book editions. In the first title, Moore's rhyming verses count to 10 and are graced with Williams's timeless artwork. And speaking of engagement, Scarry's Bunny family and the bustling streets of Busytown have entertained and informed young listeners for generations. The fun vehicles alone are worth the price of admission. Welcome additions to any board book collections. --This text refers to the Board book edition.

This book is wonderful! The pictures are very colorful and peaceful to look at. Just as important, the flow and rhythm of the book is amazingly catching. I have had the entire book memorized for years, and that is without even trying.
I loved the book at 5, and I still love it at 27. I had this book as a kid, and I give it to all my friends who have children.
If you know someone who is learning to count, or someone who is a child at heart, this is the perfect book for them!

This is the counting book i grew up with so I purchased it for my own son. The animal drawings are very cute and the animals are easy to count. I like how large each object is so its easy for the child to point to each animal or object as they count. I think the hardest numbers to count are the geese in the sky for #9 because they are in a v-shape and have wings in different positions which makes it visually more difficult for little ones to follow. I also thing the pile of acorns for #10 is more difficult to count because they are dispersed unevenly and are a bit smaller than the usual images to count. The sayings for each number are really cute and engaging, though #5 does not flow as well as the rest of the book.

Overall my two favorite counting books are: Ten Tiny Tadpoles and My First Counting Book. Enjoy!

I purchased this for my nephew. I believe reading to children is one of the important activities that you can do with a child. It encourages them to read as they get older. Good reading skills is important for educational purposes. I have always liked the Little Golden book series. They are timeless classics.

I recently purchased a lot of Little Golden Books for my 3 year old daughter in order to read to work on her speech. I enjoyed my LGB when I was little and I am happy that loves them too. My First County Book is recommended to any parent wanting a good counting book.

A bouncing rhyme book. The darling illustrations of Garth Williams enhance this simple counting book, which uses items on a farm to teach counting from 1 to 10. Old fashioned and darling!

This was my favorite book when I was a child. I'm thrilled it is still in print so I can share the book with my own children. The book is full of adorable pictures of animals and simple rhymes about counting.
