I think this would be a good starter book for children who are first learning to count. I like all of the nature in the book, and the pictures are nice. ( )

A good poetic style book for counting. ( )

Not my favorite George Ella Lyon book, but still nice. It was a simple poetry/photography piece that I think most any reader could get through pretty simply. Nice book, but I wouldn't be too broken up if I couldn't get my hands on it again. ( )

A red-headed boy sets off on: "One path, / a stick for a staff" and soon encounters "Two birds, / daybreak's words". On his journey, he finds bugs, worms, nests, tracks (and a mystery!), stones, flowers, vines, and "Ten trees, / whose innumerable leaves / clean the air / for everything that breathes".

Simply look and wonders will appear. You can count them, anywhere. Here it is a bright woods where a path, a stream, leaves and vines, birds and stones, worms, bugs, and a mystery all wait to be founded and counted. The woods itself grows on a hundred acres in Appalachian Kentucky, where the photographer lives and the poet often visits. You come too.
