Booklist Review: "Ages 1^-4. One of the great traditional counting songs gets a fresh, colorful treatment that will have toddlers chanting and pointing as they name the animals, copy the actions, and learn their numbers. Cabrera's Cat's Colors (1997) was focused on the cozy indoors, but here the big, clear double-page pictures show an open green meadow in yellow sunlight, where frogs jump, bees buzz, worms wiggle, ducks quack, and other animals each do their thing all day long. As in Cat's Colors, the thick brush strokes focus attention on the bond between mother and babies, often eye to eye, while the young ones learn what to do. In a final spreading scene, "while the mothers are away," all the groups of baby animals come out to play in the open meadow; and then, right at the end, Cabrera lines them up, from 1 turtle to 10 perky rabbits, for more counting fun. --Hazel Rochman"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a lively variation on the familiar nursery rhyme, Cabrera (Eggday) offers an appealing and energetic landscape of boldly applied colors. Smudges reminiscent of finger painting dot the meadow, and each animal, outlined in thick black, stands out against its habitat. A pair of little goldfish with propeller fins swims in a blue-green sea, and seven froggies jump with Old Mother Frog in a "green grass heaven." The "little ratties four" gnaw all day by the old barn door, and 10 gray rabbits twitch in "a cozy wee den." To reinforce the counting lessons, Cabrera shows the entire barnyard scene and invites readers to find the animals once more ("Over in the meadow/ while the mothers are away,/ can you count the babies?/ They've all come out to play!"). A final page offers yet another refresher, as the animals cavort around their corresponding numeral. Learning to count--and even a bit about nature--is as easy as one, two, three in this merry meadow. Ages 4-8. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
