Board Book Reviews: Count on Me 123, and A Caravan of Camels

Count On Me 123 by J.B. Frank

Count On Me 123
by J.B. Frank (Goodreads Author)
5 out of 5 stars

This board book explores the different types of people that you can always count on. Firefighters, doctors, teachers, grandparents, friends: all these people will be there to help you when you need them. We count down from 10 as the book shows us people working, teaching, and healing.

What a sweet book!!! It’s just so adorable and meaningful to hear about the sweet siblings helping each other, and the moms and dads taking care of their children. I think it’s cool that the book ends by saying that you can also count on yourself, and there is a little mirror on the last page.

I just love these colorful illustrations! All the scenes are full of little details in the background and a bunch of different characters from all races working and playing. Each page is vibrant and full of energy and fun!

The text is written in rhyme. Now I am very picky about children’s books written in rhyme. It’s one of my pet peeves if the rhyme is not written well. But this book is so great! The rhymes are really good, and the meter fits, and the whole story flows along nicely. This would be a delight to read aloud!

I can’t wait to share this book with my little nieces!

An Amalgam of Animals by Christopher Robbins

A Caravan of Camels
by Christopher RobbinsNichola Cowdery (Illustrations)
5 out of 5 stars

This board book explores all the different names for groups of animals going from A to Z. A pod of whales, a romp of otters, and a prickle of porcupines are some of my favorites. There are some really zany ones too like a flamboyance of flamingoes and a shiver of sharks. There are even some mythical beasts included like a blessing of unicorns.

I love the bright illustrations in this book! Every page is full of vibrant color, and the animal characters are all so energetic and cute.

The animals are all doing something different like marching in a parade, dancing, or playing sports. Sometimes they dress up like superheroes, and some of them work as security guards. There are all sorts of silly puns and funny details!

This such a fun book!
