Rubin, Susan Goldman. Counting with Wayne Thiebaud. San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2007.
Amidst all the high-art for children books for expectant and emergent readers, Counting with Wayne Thiebaud really stands out. The selected works of Thiebaud are dreamy, gentle, delicious and inviting. They are the delectable and beautiful images children might actually crave, rather than the Picasso, da Vinci, and Pollok paintings somewhat awkwardly superimposed into the landscape of a children’s book. The paintings selected are all feasts for the eyes. Counting in friendly pastels through the pages, each painting crosses the page crease, complimented with a large print number and text for what the object is. The pages count 1 through ten, with a bonus page challenging the reader to count all the gumballs painted in a gumball machine. There may be more interactive and dynamic counting books, but few if any will surpass the beauty of this lovely, satisfying board book. Small for travel and for babies’ hands, this book is a very pleasant introduction for early infants to counting, and because of the rich and wonderful images will remain a comfort book for children as they grow.
