KIRKUS REVIEW

One giraffe, two tigers, three Dalmatians, four sea turtles and five tropical fish array themselves with splendid, striking clarity over the pages of this brief gem. Bolam depicts smiling animals against bright, high-contrast backgrounds on the recto with a large numeral colored with the animal’s coat pattern facing on the verso. An added fillip introduces a tactile element, with both animal and numeral’s coloration pattern embossed to create bumps and ridges. Similarly, its companion, Colors (ISBN: 978-1-58925-845-1) introduces a red strawberry, blue ocean, yellow cheese, a green tree and a black-and-white zebra with equal simplicity and fun. Both beautiful and baby-centric—a lovely package. (3-12 mos.)
