for Counting on the Woods by George Ella Lyon and Ann W. Olson
"One path, a stick for a staff / Two birds, daybreak's words" begins this poetic counting book inspired by the observations of a young boy on a walk through the woods in Appalachian Kentucky. Ann Olson's distinctive photographs capture both the immense, lush greenness of the woods and the small details, such as delicate flowers and sturdy blades of grass, while George Ella Lyon's rhyming words often surprise us with their spare poetry. Together the text and pictures will help children focus on the sorts of natural wonders that are as common as those they may observe in their own backyards, as they count things such as nests, tracks, bugs, stones and flowers. (Ages 4-8)
