This cute, simple board book teaches counting from 1 to 10. It begins “One hamster wants to play, Two hamsters shout hooray.” There is no story. The events being counted have no continuity other than they are all activities engaged in by the hamsters.
Hamsters are drawn with black outline and loosely colored in with marker. Kass Reich believes in coloring outside the lines. Although the figures are very simple, they are all different and endearing.
Toddlers would enjoy counting along with the hamsters.
