KIRKUS REVIEW

An interactive book of numbers features numerals one through five and an accompanying cast of zoo animals.

Designed for little hands, this offering boasts a die-cut handle and five tabs for easy carrying and turning of pages, most of which incorporate either interesting textures or flaps. Each left-hand page presents an Arabic numeral and its name spelled out beneath it against a mostly white background. On each right-hand page, readers will find a corresponding number of animals at play—with numbered bubbles next to each one for help in counting—and an invitation to interact. For instance, “2 spotted giraffes” invite readers to “stand up tall,” while “5 peek-a-boo monkeys” ask tots to “wave hello!” The final pages bring together all the zoo animals, asking readers to choose their favorites. The illustrations present cheerful, friendly-looking animals appearing against relatively simple backdrops while incorporating some interactivity with textures and a nifty peekaboo flap to hide the smiling monkeys.

A sophisticated yet appropriately simple design and appealing illustrations make this one a good choice for caregivers looking to introduce numbers and counting in an entertaining and interactive environment. (Board book. 1-3)
