Count on the Subway

Count on the Subway
Written by Paul DuBois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender
Illustrated by Dan Yaccarino

On a busy day in New York City, a girl and her mother begin their journey with 1 MetroCard. They count as they go, tallying everything from empty seats to train stops. They count up to 10, and when they transfer to another train, they count back to 1. Their ride ends at 1 station, central and grand! This is a vibrant counting book that features the equally lively sights and characters of Manhattan. The authors' use of rhyming goes well with the rhythm of the subway, and Yaccarino's colorful, unique style of illustration is delightful.
