One Hungry Heron by Carolyn Beck, Karen Patkau1 One hungry heron, tall and still, crooks her leg and tips her bill. 2 Two drowsy catfish, way down deep, snuffle through the muck, then go to sleep. 3 Three darting dragonflieshover and dip.Whiz! Pause! Whiz!Zoom! Zoom! Zip! The scene starts out quietly enough, but soon the lone heron is joined by two lazy catfish and three darting dragonflies. Before you can say ten tiny turtles, the pond is alive with a great array of wetland wildlife. Told in clever rhyme, this is a counting book with a difference. Numbers are spelled out in bold text, decorated numerals adorn each page, and amounts are depicted by groupings of swimming, flapping, paddling, darting pond creatures. Up to ten and down again, the count goes forwards and backwards, as thunder rumbles in the background. Plip, plop, the rain begins and lightning flashes. Everything dives for shelter and stays hidden -- until the sun comes out. Then life returns to the pond providing a delightful search and count last page. Rarely is so much delivered in one spectacular counting book.
