KEITH BAKER has written and illustrated many adored picture books, among them Little Green, Big Fat Hen, and Who Is the Beast? He lives in Seattle, Washington.
Two intriguing books by Keith Baker invite toddlers to see the world differently. In Who Is the Beast?, the animals of a lush, multi-patterned jungle "see his stripes, yellow and black" as well as the beast's tail, strong legs and green eyes. All clues point to the tiger, but a surprise ending imparts the gentle lesson that we are all more alike than we are different. In Quack and Count, seven ducklings splash and play in different combinations that introduce basic addition: "7 ducklings, 5 plus 2/ Playing games of peekaboo." Collage art fills the jungle and pond life scenes with a riot of colors and textures. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
"This deceptively straightforward book introduces youngsters to addition in such an unobtrusive, organic and merry way that they may not even notice how much they're learning. "--Publishers Weekly "Wonderfully handled . . . harmoniously reinforcing the beauty of numbers themselves."--Chicago Tribune "A delightful book offering loads of fun with the number seven. . . . This charmer should have little ones figuring out the basic concept of addition in no time."--Booklist
