Think about it - how many times when you go out to a fast food place and got the cups with the bubble selection on the lid did a kid (or you!) NOT push every single one in?!
The only thing I don't care for is that because the pages are all so thick and the book is sooooo heavy (it's over an inch thick) as kids have tried mis-handling it, carrying it by the cover - it easily weakened the spine. So I used clear packing tape to prevent it from separating from the pages. I taped the front and back pages, as close to the spine as I could and this has helped quite a bit, probably more so had I done it when we got it.
I also use that trick on all the lift the flap books we get - I use packing tape along the flap seam on both sides so kids can't rip them off :)
However, this book is fantastic in that it holds his attention for so long and we have counted with him so many times that he has actually begun to understand one to one correspondence. This is a child who barely talks, but he can count. At this point he is consistently correct up to four. As in, he can count four of anything, and understands that there are four. He is inconsistent up to eight. We've had the book for three weeks. I am pretty confident that he's going to be counting to ten by the time he is two, and when I say counting, I don't mean reciting the numbers, I mean actually understand the concept of numbers describing a quantity.
It is true that the book counts down from ten and that we typically teach children to count up from zero. I don't really see that as a big deal. The thing I like about this book as opposed to the others in the series is that there is no story, it's just the Old McDonald song. As a result there's no need to turn the pages sequentially. Open to a page and count. Talk about the animals. Talk about the colors. Sing the song.
I think this a book that should be in every pre-schoolers home library.
