PreS-K-Counting, hidden numbers to find, and fun facts are included in these two books. The first one presents 11 vegetables, from 1 tomato to 11 peppers, resulting in 12 plates of salad for a family. Each page records the harvesting with sentences featuring 11 different verbs and alliteration of adjectives and nouns, which will encourage vocabulary expansion. The second title describes construction from the ground up, with "One big plan for making a big building" to a handy enumeration of the machines needed to complete it, culminating with "Twelve stories tall, the new building gleams in the sun." "Fun Facts" includes information about the world's tallest structure (the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario) and a listing of occupations connected with construction. In both books, bright, bold illustrations on full spreads make the items easy to count. Multiple uses and learning opportunities make these titles useful purchases.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
