I loved the way the author was able to combine nature, math, and poetry so seamlessly. The images in this book are wonderful and look like they were taken straight out of a nature brochure. The book is written for young readers and is very easy to read. ( )

This is a really child friendly book. It is very easy to read and follow along with. The book provides a counting objective with a rhyme scheme involved. The book is about going into the woods and counting the things you see. The story begins at the number one and ends at ten. The illustrations or actual pictures are really nice to see about nature. This is a very good book for children who are learning how to count. ( )

This book is a nature book that is a good reading level for young or beginning readers. The print is large with few words per page and the pictures are real photographs of nature. I would use this book on a day that we go on a nature walk around our campus. First I would read it and have students pay close attention to what they see it the book. Then we would see if any of those same things are in the nature around are school. We would end the lesson by collecting leaves and pine cones to make art and leaf transfers for our class book that we write together. We will go over words that rhyme and see if we have good rhymes for our own classroom book. ( )

This is a very easy book for young children to practice counting while enjoying poems. Each page has a different number that is depicted by something in nature such as flowers, birds, and bugs. ( )

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. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789424800, Hardcover)

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.
