I'm not usually a fan of counting books, but the cute cover design and clever title captured my curiosity. I brought the book home.
I've opened it more than one, two, three times. Why? The rhythm and rhyme of the words and the jingle and jime of the illustrations pair up perfectly as though they were created by a single person.
The counting follows the cool, sweater-sporting crows through a day of snacking, hopping, singing, flocking. On it goes all the way to the end where danger lurks close by, and off the crows fly.
Counting Crows is candy for the eyes and ears. I'm indeed a fan.
