Son (age 6) says...
"I like to read this book because I like to count how many buildings, how many animals, and how many plants are on these pages. My favorite animals are the Gondolopes and the Puddlebuts. I like the Featherfern plants, and the Log Cabins."

Mom says...
My son loves this book, and no wonder. There are so many ways to interact with it. The mathematical concepts are actually pretty complex (going from subtraction/addition to squares, exponents, primes), but children of any age can enjoy the games of counting down and back up again, and playing a "Where's Waldo" style game of hunt-and-find, looking for fantastic imaginary creatures. The illustrations are lush, colorful, full of life. Also, the book is a good visual aid for helping children understand what happens when a delicate ecosystem is thrown out of balance.

All ages can enjoy the artwork, but it's best for kids who know how to count up to ten at least.
