From one bright engagement ring—which drops from a man's pocket and rolls away down a city street—this playful counting book for readers up to 6 begins with a determinedly helpful little girl. She runs after the ring to give it back, with her mother in tow, but numerous things keep getting in her way.

"With each turn of the page, there is a new impediment or distraction, and always in increasing numbers. 'But four little babies / block the path..../ Then five frisky dogs / spread out like a fan.'... [Gretchen] Géser's lightly colored watercolors are simple but have just enough detail to realistically depict the city-street action while keeping with the subdued tone of the story. An unusually sweet and unobtrusive counting tale."—Booklist
