5.0 out of 5 stars An Old Favorite, Well Done, May 24, 2005

There are many, many different illustrations of these verses, but Mr. Keats has certainly done an excellent job of making his book distinctive.

Whereas most of the other books have pastel, baby-style, cartoonish drawings, this book is done in a 'more mature' style, using watercolors in a darker palette. [I would direct you to the Amazon "Search Inside this book" feature but ironically it doesn't seem to be working. Instead take a look at the turtle on the back cover to get an idea.]

Five Stars. A classic rhyme with distinctive artwork. This is a book for preschoolers and kindergarteners, etc. that well may be weary of babish artwork. ( )

Counting and rhyming make it super appropriate for the little ones as they need all the practice they can get! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140565086, Paperback)

Welcome to a lush meadow bustling with activity, where one turtle digs, two fish swim, three bluebirds sing, and so on to ten fireflies that shine in the night. Keats's collage-style illustrations perfectly complement this classic Appalachian counting rhyme, which is also a popular song for toddlers.
