Acerca de


In an imaginatively illustrated counting book, Mother Earth teaches children how to count using plants, animals, lakes, oceans, an continents.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- This pleasant counting book gently explores the diverse wonders of our planet. Counting from 1 to 10 and down again, the spare text lists geographic features ("3 climate zones/only 3") and animals ("8 birds/ and many more"). Four unillustrated closing pages add descriptive details, e.g., the square mileage of the four oceans and the habitats and orders of nine mammals. Softly colored illustrations with appropriately earthy tones depict the described feature with gracefully varied simplicity. The seven continents are clearly shown on a roughly accurate world map, while the four oceans are seen from an unexpected northern view, with the Arctic Ocean in the center. Locations of the nine mammals are specifically designated, while the eight birds emerge from a globe that looks like a cracked egg. The geographical vagueness of the illustrations is occasionally unfortunate; e.g., the placement of 10 fish at various spots on a map, for example, might lead readers to assume that they are located in the area shown, especially since this is the case with the mammals on the preceding page. Frasier's On the Day You Were Born (Harcourt, 1991) is one of several more intrinsically involving works with a similar theme, but the light geography-based approach found in this one is worth considering. --Steven Engelfried, Alameda County Library, CA
