Description

"As the countdown proceeds, the snow begins to fall, getting heavier with each panel until it nearly obscures the animals; the effect of the snow over the five wolves, for hares, three polar bears and two snowy owls--all white to begin with--is spectacular, and readers will feel the chill. Lovely and, thanks to its small trim, intimate." - Kirkus Reviews

"A sparse and lovely meditation on winter wilderness." - Publishers Weekly

"Newhouse's sensitive portrayal of the stark Arctic landscape creates an atmospheric chilliness that perfectly captures a winter evening north of the 49th parallel. Original without being gimmicky, Counting on Snow should come with the purchase of every crib in this country, as it has all the makings of a Canadian classic." - Starred Review, Quill & Quire

"Folk artist Maxwell Newhouse has created a beautifully simple counting book with a twist. The book begins with ten crunching caribou on a green plain. As the numbers of animals decrease, the snow begins to fall. By the end of the book, the page is heavy with snow. A lovely introduction to numbers and the animals of Canada." - ForeWord Magazine
