really liked it
bookshelves: pic-bk-counting

(CIP) Dressed in raincoats and carrying umbrellas, a platoon of aunts march through the rainy city streets led by a little girl with a drum in this cumulative rhyme.

(Claudia) An attractive counting, singing storytime book, with a multicultural cast of aunts. The varied adventures of the “little one” – a self-confident preschooler (Latina?) – her dog, and her affectionate particular aunt provide lots of interest for one-on-one readings.

(SLJ) "Youngsters will thoroughly enjoy … this classic childhood song … [and] Manning’s clever full-page spreads. PreS-Gr 1."

(Horn Book) "There are opportunities to count those multitudinous aunts, .... but in the end, it’s the cheerful nonsense that prevails, and the chance to chime in on the repetitive text, or to sing it."
