Count 1,2,3 on the Subway by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender- ADVISABLE

Jacobs, Paul Dubois & Jennifer Swender Count 1,2,3 on the Subway.  Illustrated by Dan Yaccarion.  PICTURE BOOK.  Random House, 2014.  $14.99.  Content: G. This is a fun and simple book that not only explores counting numbers from 1 to 10 and back down again, but also the fun and exciting adventures that can be found in New York City.  The story begins with the little girl and her mother buying one metro card.  The experiences they have from that moment on increase in counting until the number 10.  The middle of the book shows the inside of the subway where “10 friends sway, boogie and bop to a tunnel beat… Here’s our stop!”  The story is written simply in rhyme with few words.  The story ends again with the number one where the mother and girl end up at “one station, central and grand.”  This is a fun and exciting counting book with illustrations that are unique and playful. This would be a great book to help teach counting to ten.   Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
