From "One gray mouse in a black mouse house" to "Ten red snails in a gray snail pail," learning to count has never been so much fun! A colorful cast of characters, cleverly shaped from Fimo, helps young children learn colors, animals and the numbers from one to ten. Kids will have fun following the adventurous mouse as he scampers from picture to picture, gathering objects from every page.

It might seem that nothing new could possibly be done with the counting book, but Katherine Burton and Kim Fernandes have created a little volume which is vivid, fresh, and thoroughly charming. While the illustrations in One Grey Mouse are what immediately attract attention, the simplicity of its text is very skillful. The pattern is number, colour, animal, in/on a colour, animal, object, rhyming so that "Five pink pigs in yellow pig wigs," are followed by "Six yellow bees in a green bee tree," then by "Seven green frogs on a brown frog log." The little rhymes are so well chosen as to seem inevitable. The book invites participation, in chanting it aloud, laughing at the antics, hunting for the mouse, stroking the cuddly bears, or, best of all, getting out the clay and trying it ourselves.
