“Bold, simple layouts, the juxtaposition of printed fabrics, and the decorative use of rickrack and stitching make the playful art visually pleasing, but even better is Hines’ fine-tuned understanding of how young children might use the book as they learn to count. Simple and striking.” --Booklist, starred review (5/15/08)
