What weabout it
This book’s remarkable power is in its vivid illustrations, which show zoo animals within train cars in numerical progression.


The author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar has done it again, with a counting book that packs a wallop.

Eric Carle uses his usual collage-influenced style, but the scale and color is dramatic and easy to read—or in this case, count.

A massive elephant takes up the entire first car, while two violet-hued rhinos fill out the second, their mouths gaping. The train wheels and connectors add an extra dose of visual rhythm. You can’t look away from this book.
