Farmer Brown and all the animals from Click, Clack, Moo are back in this counting book. The illustrations of the familiar characters might be a draw for many readers, but this book falls a bit flat. It really only contains the number on each page with a few words (e.g., "3 buckets piled high"), and the story is so slim, it's hardly worth being called a story. An adult caregiver would have to fill in a lot of details for the young audience to truly get what's going on in the pages of this book. Typically, Cronin writes fantastic books; unfortunately, this is not one of those. ( )

The animals of Farmer Brown's farmyard return in this amusing counting adventure, intent on playing a prank on their human caretaker. With Duck (naturally) leading the way, everyone from the chickens (four of them) to the cows (five in all) get in on the act. In the end, Farmer Brown is confronted with a very fishy surprise...

Like Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack: An Alphabetical Adventure, which featured the farmyard animals from Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type in a more story-centric concept-book than one usually sees, Click, Clack, Splish Splash: A Counting Adventure manages to do something entertaining with its numeric narrative. This isn't "just" a counting book - it tells a story, and an amusing one at that. I wouldn't say it was the equal of some of the more narrative-driven entries in this series, but it will still have appeal. Recommended to fans of the Farmer Brown's Barnyard stories, particularly if they're in the market for a counting book. ( )

Written by the same author as one of my favorite books (Click Click Moo Cows That Type) this delightful book is a wonderful addition to the many counting books out there. With familiar farm characters children are exposed to numbers and counting while also telling a story. In this book the animals have yet again stumped the farmer by creating a very sneaky plan to free all of the fish from his fish tank. They are, of course, successful! This book is funny and with the colorful illustrations a delight to read. ( )

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–Some familiar faces from Cronin and Lewin's well-known series that began with Click, Clack, Moo (S & S, 2000) appear in this clever adventure. The farmyard crew is engineering a fishy rescue of sorts, releasing 10 fish in 10 buckets while the farmer slumbers. As the animals make their mischief, numbers from 1 to 10 are introduced, beginning with 1 farmer sleeping. 2 feet creeping. The cartoon illustrations have the same great appeal as the previous books and combine successfully with this very basic introduction to numeric concepts. A great tool for parents and teachers seeking to make learning fun.–Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA

This book is a counting adventure that the animals go on. It starts off with one and goes all the way to ten. The animals wanted to go fishing. When the animals get to the fishing spot they count backwards from ten and let the fish go. Then the farmer finds that he had no more fish. This book is showing how to rhyme and also counting. This book helps children be able to count forward and backwards. ( )
