Count Me In

School Library Journal

Photos of clay figures created by the Aguilar sisters from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico grace this fine bilingual counting book. Its conceit is that all of the figures are in a parade, led by a man with a balloon. The element of the folk-art aesthetic makes this an ideal title to use to teach numbers, while celebrating Mexican cultural heritage at the same time. The figures themselves are beautiful, creative, and sometimes whimsical, such as the giants maneuvered by a person wearing the costume who can be seen peeking through from inside.
