The illustrations are very Jan Thomas like which makes sense since she is the author. Great rhyme that seamlessly goes from suggesting to counting how many goats in different scenes. Great for storytime! ( )

Similar to Where Is The Green Sheep? but with counting. If you pause to count, though, it interrupts the rhyming flow of the text, especially at the end ("Can you count their pricked-up ears? You can? I'm not surprised!")

Simple illustrations in bright colors on bright backgrounds with bold black outlines. ( )

How many goats? Lets count them and see. This rhyming book is great to introduce math to children. It allow the children to interact as you read it. ( )

A fun read aloud for the preschool crowd. ( )

This book is a great way to engage and introduce children into the world of math utilizing goats, outlandish imagery, animals and humor to entice children to count. The book moves from 1 - 10 along the way asking children to identify aspects of the images to count.
