KIRKUS REVIEW

 Stickland (Dinosaur Stomp!, 1996, etc.) has produced a counting/animal-naming rhyme, with a small Mylar mirror mounted on the last page so that readers can get a peek of themselves at the end of the parade of cheerful animals that prance across the pages: ``One bear, one dog, one mouse, one frog.'' A charming, simple notion, useful to accustom youngsters to left-to-right sequencing (each new animal appears at the right of the spread), but some pages are so carelessly laid out that there are large areas of white space on the left, while the animals are crowded into the righthand page (viewers never see more than the head and forefeet of the moose, eighth in line). A good idea sabotaged by poor design. (Picture book. 2-5)
