I just wrote another review for a counting book and stated that it was boring - which it was - this one, while still a counting book, actually gets a bit interesting. the story actually makes a bit of sense, the kid is getting all these animals as gifts, and each animal keeps having a baby - so it becomes a multiplication book, of sorts, and goes well past 10, which is nice. my son also thinks it's fun! he much prefers this one over the 'abuelita fue al mercado' one. i also took it to their preschool class to read, and they all had fun making animal sounds and counting - and finally, an important point, it's well written and the spanish is good.
