Let's Count Goats!


by Mem Fox, illustrated by Jan Thomas
Beach Lane Books, 2010. Unpaged. Picture Book
The title alone makes me laugh. The reader is asked on every other page if they are able to count the goats who are engaged in very ungoat like activities. Jan Thomas' bright and bold outlined figures are child friendly and appealing. While Mem Fox demonstrates once again her
carefully chosen words and phrases. Children will be eager to point their fingers and count.
