Praise for Count!

"The substance here is traditional-numbers from one to ten introduced with animals to count; the idea extended with tens to 50-but the presentation is outstanding....Fashioned with care, intelligence, and artistry-a delight." --Kirkus Reviews, pointer

"A fresh, upbeat concept book...Very bright, very hip!" --School Library Journal, starred review

"The resounding vitality and immediacy of this selection turn a counting lesson into an exhilarating experience." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

She won a Caldecott Honor for In the Small, Small Pond. Denise published her first painting in the third grade, when she started taking classes at the Toledo Museum of Art and one of her paintings was chosen to be the cover of a teacher’s magazine. She now works primarily with paper, by pouring colored paper pulp through hand-cut stencils. She lives in Toledo, Ohio.
