3.0 out of 5 stars Good writing, bad illustrations, apparently no editor May 17 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writer shows potential. The rhyming format was fun for the kids, even if the rhythm wasn't perfect.

The editing was terrible, though. In fact, I think it's pretty safe to say that this book had never been seen by an editor at all. Take this sentence, for instance: "Now my Journey's over my swimming it is done." That should have been two sentences. And why on earth was "journey" capitalized?

As for the illustrations, they struck me as a collection of clip art that were cut and pasted from different sources -- they were colorful enough for children, but the writer must remember that the book is being read by parents as well, and if the parent can't stand the book, the book will probably never get read again.

I, for one, can't stand to open this book again. The editing and illustrations simply grate on me too much. There are other books that are just as entertaining to my kids and are not half as torturous to me, so I'll read those to my kids instead.

I'm giving it three stars because the author shows potential.
2.0 out of 5 stars Lively ideas; lacking in punctuation and rhymes Jan. 2 2013
By Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod, author of the Seven Day Manuscript Machine and Writing the Bible for Kids - Published on Amazon.com
Here are just two of the non-rhythmic ungrammatical non-rhymes that await you should you have the misfortune of being presented with t his book:

"Many arms were near me and I swam a faster rate
The octopi (octopus) were getting closer WATCH OUT there are eight."

"Looking down I saw the ocean floor it wasn't very even
Crabs were swimming all about look there are seven."

I hate to say it, but the ocean floor isn't the only thing uneven about this book.

I will credit the author by saying that the basic idea seems lively enough to captivate a child's imagination. However, that doesn't give anyone permission to skip the crucial step of having the book (even if self-published) professionally edited for little things like grammar and punctuation that are a vital aid to any reader. Though the book is aimed at children, it is their parents who will have to read it, in some cases, over and over and over.

As it is, this book is barely legible and could stand a little "workshopping" before it's ready for prime time... Buyer beware.
3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay for toddlers, maybe better for slightly older child Dec 19 2012
By C. J. Lambert - Published on Amazon.com

Just okay. Might be better for older children but my 21-month-old grandson, who loves books was bored with this one. We will try it again in the future when he is a little better with counting concepts.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY. Clueless author writes for who knows what age group and the illustrations are laughable May 19 2012
By ForeverReading - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what age group the author thinks a 1 to 10 counting book should be for, but she has no clue whatsoever. The story is way too complex and it's a misorganized mess. Reading this to a child who wants to learn numbers could do actual harm and the illustrations are some of the worst I've ever seen.
