Father Rabbit wants to count his very large family in this silly but appealing picture book. Unfortunately, every time he starts to count, they move, hop off, or start a game and he loses track. “ ‘One, two, three, four—oops! Oh, noggin-sploggin, boodle-doodle!’ he grumbled.” He waits until the bunnies are asleep to count them, and feels accomplished, but only until Mother Rabbit shows him the room where a lot of rambunctious little ones remain to be included. Delicately colored illustrations show all the frolicking rabbits, dressed in flowered and striped overalls and hats, climbing trees, dancing, playing hide-and-seek, and snoozing. Young children will enjoy the nonsense rhymes the father mutters every time he gets mixed up in this funny, soothing book. (Picture book. 5-7)
