I characterize this book as a picture book for the nursery audience. I gave it 5 stars because I am positive my daughter learned a lot from this book!

This bright book is full of surprises. On each set of facing pages is a digit, from one to ten, with its name written in word form opposite. The giant number is the same color as the objects under the flap. For intstance, under the red number nine are nine red dragonflies. Counting, colors and vocabulary for babies and toddlers are delivered in a most enjoyable package. Plus, the lift-the-flap format thrills the young reader again and again.
I realize that children need high-impact color and they like interactive texts that allow them to move the pieces and reveal words and pictures. As an adult reader of children's books, I find this sort of thing rather tedious (unless we're talking about certain pop-up books). This is a concept book that teaches numbers mostly but also teaches color and animals. I think children would love it; I, however, wasn't all that impressed.
Not only colorful--which it is, but also an excellent choice for counting in the summer, as all of the items, 1 through 10 are things you might see this time of year flying or hopping around, swimming in the stream or floating on the pond.
