Kirkus Reviews

Two books in one: a flip-over with an alphabet book at one end, a counting book showing coins used for amounts up to 99 cents at the other. This is elegant simplicity at its best. Using the basic colors of a new box of kindergarten crayons, Hoban chooses brightly enameled upper-and-lower-case letters and figures whose forms resemble those taught to beginning writers. Each letter is accompanied by one easily recognized object (egg, goldfish, umbrella); coins representing each amount up to 30 cents plus 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 99 cents are shown in as many as three combinations for a given amount. The organization of each page into four blocks gives the design rhythm, coherence and consistency. The quintessence of first alphabet and money books, produced with grace and style.

Ages 3-6. Hoban, an astute design artist, is able to get down to basics in a way that few people can match. Here she presents a combined ABC-counting book that is strikingly designed, and as a result, effective in getting its lessons across. The two-books-in-one format serves to separate the ABC from the counting aspect. After finishing one section, readers can turn the book upside down and around to begin anew. The clean, bright shapes of a glossy set of plastic letters and numbers are the primary graphic element; their vividness and angularity are countered by the lesser visual weight of the photographed objects that accompany them. In the ABC portion, pictures illustrating the letters have sure-fire child appeal: an ice cream cone, multicolored jelly beans, a toy dinosaur, and a robot, for example. In the counting section, quantity is pictured with coins, providing the added benefit of teaching children what pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters represent and how they combine to add up to 99. This multipurpose book offers a lot for the price; it will be an enticing choice for preschoolers or slightly older children learning about money. DMW. Alphabet / Counting / Coins [CIP] 86-11993

PreS-Gr 3 Hoban's clever design, providing two books in one, is highlighted with clear, bright photographs. In the alphabet half of the book, each upper- and lower-case ``soft touch'' letter in primary colors (two per page), is matched to a photo of an object. Interesting and challenging choices are presented to enhance vocabulary development of preschoolers. At ``Z,'' readers need to turn the book around for the counting half. Here ``soft touch'' numbers are used. The count proceeds in sequential order to 30, by 5's to 50, and by 10's to 90. An exciting feature of 99 Cents is the concept of monetary equivalency grouping which is introduced at number 5 and continues with increasing complexity. Teachers and parents can extend counting and grouping activities by creating additional coin combinations. Children will enjoy manipulating money, numbers, and letters to correspond to the photographs in this book. The combination of unique design, distinguished photographs, and superb layout adds up to a winner! Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Pub . Lib . , Idaho (c) Copyright 2010.
