NONI THE PONY COUNTS TO A MILLION is a cute, rhyming counting picture book. Noni the pony counts to ten with animals and bugs around her, then noticing hundreds, thousands, and finally millions (of stars).

What I loved: This is a cute and simple counting book that travels from one to ten before demonstrating the concepts of hundreds, thousands, and millions. The rhyming text is fun to read aloud and to listen to as Noni goes about her day counting, and little ones will get into counting along with her. The illustrations are cute with plenty of artistic flair and bright colors that make it fun to check out each scene along the way. This will work well for fans of Noni, particularly toddlers and young preschoolers.

What left me wanting more: As a small thing, the higher concepts of numbers are not so easily demonstrated. For instance, while she watches "thousands of cars," there are only 26 cars shown, which does not quite convey "thousands" to the reader. While older children will understand the concept, this could be confusing for toddlers who take things literally.

Final verdict: NONI THE PONY COUNTS TO A MILLION is a cute, rhyming counting book that will work for fans of the character who will enjoy practicing counting to ten.
