 There is a lot going on in the polished design of this counting book, with some scenes and objects more readily recognizable in their simplicity or sophistication than others. Cars are odd, unfamiliar shapes, five on one small page, with their passengers more the focal point. But then the people are the focus of this quirky, jolly entrant into the board book genre, in which children of different races eat blueberries, water flowers, and generally make merry. There are things to count, 120, and a nice final spread recaps the exercise. (Board book. 2-5)
