Really a barebones taste of writing. I like it for what it is though there isn't a lot to it. Still nicely done. Good counting book. ( )

Every night before she goes to bed Melinda counts all the lights she can see starting with one seashell on the nursery wall to one million twinking stars. I like the book at first when Melinda was counting things in her house, but then she ventures out into the night and counts things in the city where people are holding up flashlights to the sky. Why? I don't understand that part. I do not think this book is effective. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374355223, Hardcover)

Each night before she goes to bed, Melinda counts the lights. Beginning with one, the night-light on her wall, she counts up to twenty airplanes. But she doesn't stop there! In ever greater panoramic sweeps, her imagination carries her farther and farther away from her home as she reaches big numbers such as fifty, one hundred, one thousand, all the way up to one million and the most distant lights of all - the stars in the sky. With a simple, poetic text and luminous artwork, Steven Schnur and Stacey Schuett have carried the counting book to new numerical heights.

Each night before going to bed, Melinda counts the lights, from one seashell on the nursery wall to a million twinkling stars.
