Rating
First published in 1995 by Orchard Books, this book takes one baby, two dogs, and three bicycles on a journey from the big city to Maine's seacoast. Objects packed for the trip and things seen along the way are all happily counted, finishing in a shining finale as the family tallies 20 fireflies found during their last evening in Maine.

Reviews

PreS-Gr 1‘More than a counting book, this lively summer vacation story will be a welcome addition to anyone's bookshelf. The colorful, amusing pictures invite readers along on the trip and encourage them to look closely as they count up to 20 (fireflies). The journey itself is a realistic one for a family of five and two dogs‘``We had to stop for the bathroom six times!'' The warm-hearted family even buys ice cream for their pets. Smith's watercolor and pastels with ink marvelously blend details and humor. The parents and children build 11 sand castles, pick 15 boxes of blueberries, find 17 mushrooms, and get 18 mosquito bites. Dad bakes 16 pies while each dog eats 1 (behind his back), the mischievous baby is covered with blueberries, and the little girl adds marshmallows to her pie. An engaging summer offering, and a great concept book to boot.‘Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT
