Praise For Count My Cupcakes 123

"The rhymes read smoothly, and the rhythm bounces along to a predictable beat. Wan's palette of pink, mint green, and lemon yellow is tempered by shades of peach, olive green, and purple, along with chocolate-brown outlines. A harmless sugar-coated confection that won't rot baby's teeth." -- Kirkus Reviews
