Print Reviews of "Let's Count Goats"

Publishers Weekly:

This animated counting book uses irreverent couplets and a screwball cast of goats for its humor. As if Thomas's goats weren't entertaining enough just to look at (and they are), Fox (Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes) pairs random and often mischievous goat activities with invitations for readers to count the wide-eyed animals. Ages 2–6. (Oct.) Full Review.

Let's Count Goats

School Library Journal

PreS-K—The title says it all. Fox and Thomas draw viewers in through catchy phrases and amusing pictures of goats that appear in a variety of shapes, sizes, and numbers. As they romp across the bright, colorful pages, their antics will make children giggle; more importantly, the text encourages listeners to look carefully at what is happening. For example, the number of goats increases as the pages turn, and the author's questions concerning them will motivate viewers to examine the images and figure out the answers. A clever counting lesson.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA. School Library Journal.
