5.0 out of 5 stars Great beat! Feb. 12 2010
By Sarah Brown-Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Our family loves this book. The images are from beautiful, interesting paintings. The rhymes have a clear, thematically-related beat. My son adores this book. I'd recommend it to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best July 4 2009
By Melissa D. Guillet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
I like the books in this series. This one was not her best, with clumsy rhythm and side-stepping rhymes. Maybe she was trying for syncopation? "Counting with Wayne Thiebaud" is the best read, with the Warhol and Matisse books coming in second.
