Stanley's Numbers

9781561459766. ea vol: illus. by William Bee. 20p. (Stanley). Peachtree. Aug. 2017. Board $6.95.
Toddler-PreS—Lovable duo Stanley and Little Woo educate readers about basic concepts. In Numbers, they prepare for a picnic and readers count along with them as they near the final celebration. In Opposites, they act as counterparts in a comedic fashion. In both volumes, the intermittent appearance of vertical spreads is visually refreshing and allows for more dynamic scenes: for instance, Stanley carrying nine cheese wheels, with Little Woo happily riding on top. Kids will be asking for these by name.
