La Coccinelle
This is a difficult book to review because there's not much to it. There are only ten pages, each with a number and a picture of the appropriate number of berries, each modified by an adjective. I kind of expected more on the text side of things; the book could've included little rhymes or something. As it is, it's fairly boring, and will probably only appeal to the youngest readers who are still learning their numbers.

The artwork is okay. It's colourful, and it depicts a number of more unusual

This book is awesome. Simple, beautiful. Using useful vocabulary for baby’s future. Yes, the berries might look similar, but if a kid can eventually tell the difference between groups of similar cartoon characters, between similar models of their toy cars, between the shoes, clothes, cups, plates, they like to wear and use, similar berries will be no problem. Especially if mom and dad point out color and shape changes, the difference in the branches and leaves that hold them.

Count from one to ten in this counting board book that features lots of berries. There are berries that children will recognize like strawberries and blueberries and also new ones to explore. The vintage feel of the book is very appealing and it’s a great way to explore berries and numbers all at once.

An old fashioned country feel book that teaches all ages how to identify berries.

Simple counting book with berries.
A counting concept book that will probably confuse kids as many of the various berries mentioned look very similar in the illustrations.

A nice introduction to many summer berries. Love the vintage design and simplicity. How do you say salmonberry in Mandarin Chinese? More importantly, what IS a salmonberry? Are grapes and cherries considered berries? Why aren't all of the adjectives alliterations? I suppose this text brings up great questions to spark discussion.
