Kids Can Press: Tonawanda, NY, 2011.
The illustrations are great in this counting book. It is action-oriented and thought provoking for such a low level read. Detailed, black and white drawings are the story, though there is good use of minimalist language.
I love the concept. Ten birds are given the task of crossing a river. Each accomplishes it in its own way. Each employs a technological approach. It is subtle and humorous and encourages thinking. I love it when adults understand that young ones are capable of complicated thought and that learning is fun!
I think toddlers will love this book, for the drawings and the technology. I would use it as a springboard for discussion with preK and K and maybe as a followup for 1st and 2nd graders who have learned about simple machines
