Editorial Reviews

In this amusing and informative counting book, each language's original characters, transliterations, and phonetic spellings are provided, giving the reader a three-dimensional approach to each set of numbers. Clean, bright, action-filled illustrations help convey the culture of each language. A useful map and language key is included at the back.
Horn Book

Counting is a good introduction to new languages, and Evans (Snow Dance, 1997) has chosen a nice mix for her exercises from 1-10, including French, Spanish, Zulu, Russian, Chinese, Hebrew, and Hindi. The numerals appear next to their names in their original languages as well as in transliteration and phonetically. Roche's perky illustrations provide ten objects in each picture to be counted, from toes to lightning bugs. A map at the end of the book shows, with color-coded dots, the locations in the world where these languages are spoken.
