Young gives a new take on counting books with this story. Ten birds come to a bridge surrounded by what looks like a junkyard and they cannot seem to know how to cross it. One by one they find something in the yard and use it to find their way across. The illustrations are beautiful, done with pen and ink to give a classic feel. Though this book doesn't have a lot of bright color, the detailed pictures make up for it. While the story is cute, there is a lot of advanced vocabulary in this book that might not make it appropriate for some readers. I think it's a good way to get children to learn new and complex words, but for struggling readers this may be frustrating.
