Booklist Review

Ages 1^-4. Children will learn numbers 1 through 10 as they relish the rather extraordinary guests staying at the Hotel 1 2 3--from the wig-wearing warthog, 2 tangoing toucans, and 5 feasting foxes, to 10 tigers in tutus. Wojtowycz's use of alliteration enhances vocabulary and aids counting practice, which culminates on a double-page spread showing the animal groups peering out from their rooms, looking straight at the reader. The last spread reveals a hotel under Hotel 1 2 3, where mice are engaged in activities that offer even more opportunities to count. Pair this with the equally colorful Flora McDonnell's A B C (1997) for lessons full of fun. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-A fanciful counting book featuring sleepwalking skunks, singing sheep, and tigers in tutus. As various animals settle into a hotel, they engage in a variety of activities centering on a number from 1 to 10. For example, in room 3, one finds "three thirsty flamingos" having tea. Attentive children will find plenty of additional items or sets of items to count in each room. On every spread, a corresponding number of mice peer out from holes in the wall, finally revealing a busy mouse motel inside it. Flat, cartoon-style illustrations in riotous color combinations match the madcap tone of the book. The electric hues, simple lines, and large shapes make the book especially suited for groups; however, the detail also provides much for one-on-one sharing.- Carolyn Stacey, Jefferson County Public Library, Arvada, CO (c) Copyright 2010.
