Nonfiction Tie in- Social Studies, Geography, Science, Life Science, Animals, Ecology, Habitats. Book Reviews: Dubin's textured cut- and torn-paper illustrations evoke both animals and habitats fur looks soft, rocks look hard, and one can almost smell the greenery, though the scenes are less realistic than cute. And the back matter adds significantly to the learning experience with paragraphs about mountain habitats, the featured animals and the bonus hidden animals. Author s and illustrator s notes give hints on how to extend the fun and learning and tell how the art was created. ~ Kirkus Reviews. "This book is a great introduction for young ones to both wildlife and geography, all while learning how to count. The beautiful art will draw in readers of all ages. "~ David Mizejewski, Naturalist, National Wildlife Federation. The beautiful artwork and excellent rhyming text would be enough to recommend this title. But its clever inclusion of counting, animals, and habitats that makes it a perfect pick for STEM story times with young children." ~ Amy Koester, the Show Me Librarian. This book captures the wonderful diversity of the world's mountains with illustrations that make you want to touch the animals and landscapes. A great interactive book for young kids with enough accurate background information to be educational for the adults." ~ William McShea, Ecologist and Giant Panda Expert. Discover twenty cool animals, ten great mountain ranges, and seven continents all in one story! And do it in the age-old style of children the world over - by clapping, counting, singing, and acting like . . . Well, animals! What fun!
