    1. Carousel (UK), June 2013

      1 2 3 Little Donkey has a most satisfactory story structure. With quirky characters, there is lots to anticipate in a comfortable domestic setting, but it all ends in tears. What a blessing that Mama is there to kiss them all away

    2. The Children’s Bookshop, June 2013

      With thick strong pages, bold illustrations and a beautifully embossed front cover, this is a lovely gift for a new baby.

    3. Little Treasures, May 2013

      This simple but charming little counting book will also help give him an early grip on numbers.

    4. Kirkus Reviews (US, February 2013

      A counting book and a cautionary tale, translated from Dutch. Anthropomorphic animals appear fully clothed, in bright outline, on solid-color pages, each of which faces its number and text. …the effect of the flat but saturated color backgrounds (including hot pink endpapers) makes for some engagement. Sweet and definitely out of the ordinary.

    5. Magpies, March 2013

      Refreshingly out of the norm… Little Donkey is an endearing, but very naughty, anthropomorphised character with enormous appeal.

    6. Kiwi Families, April 2013

      A lovely little book that helps children learn counting and numbers with some sweet humour.

    7. Bookrapt, February 2013

      A bright and attractive counting book with appealing characters…Annemarie van Haeringen’s illustrations are cheerful and active.

    8. Publishers Weekly (US), February 2013

      The story’s tidy emotional arc and gentle mischief should help make this a go-to book for toddlers.
