    1. For me (and likely for many), the absolute star of Graeme Base's deceptively simple counting book (that is to say that the text itself is straight forward and simple), are the puzzles (the I spy animals) hidden in the intricate and detailed illustrations. It not only trains children in a fun type of "game" how to recognise patterns and the like, it also might just give them a chance to shine, to be better than their parents (children are actually often better than many adults at these types of p [...]


    2. As 1, 2, etc. up to 10 animals come to the water hole, it gets smaller and smaller, with cool cut out pages for the water hole. Then, with rain, the water hole gets bigger again, and the final page shows all the animals when they return to it. At the end of the book the numbers 1 through 10 are again listed with the natural location of each animal in the book: by continent, country, region, or habitat. Each of the book’s pages shows different animals in different parts of the world.I especiall [...]


    3. The Water Hole is a gorgeous counting book. Each page shows a number of animals drinking at the water hole, starting with one rhino and ending with ten kangaroos. Then oops! The water hole is suddenly dry and the animals go away. But rain comes soon and all the animals come back.The elaborately detailed illustrations are just beautiful. There is so much detail and so much personality in these images. I just loved the whole book!This book is great for reinforcing numbers in a classroom, but it al [...]


    4. Nice way to introduce young ones to the rainy-season/dry-season aspect of nature and also to emphasize the importance of water (my husband works with water resources and this is really one of the areas of our environment that is underappreciated! We are facing a major water crisis in the future if something doesn't happen to fix it!) Children will enjoy the little cut-out "watering hole" on each page, getting smaller and smaller as you flip the pages. The animal illustrations are realistic and i [...]



    5. This is a wonderful picture book, as we have come to expect from Graeme Base. It's a counting book with animals, but so much more. There are hidden animal pictures on most pages, which are fun to look for,and some are difficult to find! And the variety of animals is great, they are grouped together on each page by the region of the world where they live. There's even a page of extinct animals, which is a good lesson by itself. Overall, a great book to read aloud with children, poring over each p [...]


    6. Graeme Base illustrates animals that are so real they seem to be alive on the page. Love his work and this book follows suit.The Water Hole is for the most part, a counting book. 1 rhino visits the water hole, then 2 tigers, and so forth until all the jungle animals from all over world have consumed all the waterbut the story doesn't end there. The counting theme ends and Base focuses on the jungle's cycle of drought and flood. You could easily tie this book into a science unit or lesson on seas [...]


    7. When I glanced through this book at the library, I was confused because various animals from different countries were drinking from the same water hole. (Pandas? Moose? Tigers?) But as I looked at it more I realized that each illustration represents a different part of the world. (For example: Africa, India, Himalayas, North America, Rivers and Streams, Europe, China, South America, Galapagos Island, and Australia.) The locations are revealed at the end of the book. So very educational!


    8. I could look at this book forever. Hidden animals on every page, colorful, realistic illustrations, it's got it all.


    9. Booklist (October 1, 2001 (Vol. 98, No. 3))Ages 3-6. From the creator of Animalia (1986) and The Sign of the Seahorse (1992) comes another beautifully illustrated animal fantasy, this time doubling as counting exercises. "Down at the secret water hole the animals all come,"the text begins, and on each spread, animals from an international roundup gather to take a drink: one rhino, two tigers, and so on, until, by "ten kangaroos,"the water has run dry. Luckily, the rains come, bringing everyone t [...]


    10. At first glance this book appears to be a counting book, and it very much is, but it is also the effects of long periods between rain and the effects to the animal habitat. Granted the animals represented in this habitat, are in fact from many different habitats, but the idea behind a shrinking resource is still there, ready for further discussion. An additional feature that I love is the texture the author gave the water hole, you can see and feel it getting smaller and smaller. I also absolute [...]


    11. My Review: I didn't realize until I added Animalia did I realize that Graeme Base had more books, so of course I had to track some down. I really enjoyed this one as did Munchkin, the art was slightly different with more realistic art and more hidden images. I really like the way the art and theme went together and conveyed an important message for young readers. Definitely recommend adding this one to your shelves even if you don't have a child. I have found Munchkin many times hunkered down lo [...]





    12. Picture Book Critique #15The Water HoleBy: Graeme Base1. Picture Book Genre: Counting Picture Book2.

    13. Author / Illustrator: Graeme BaseFirst Published: 2001The Waterhole was inspired by a four-week sightseeing safari through Kenya and Tanzania. I had in mind a simple story about the cycle of seasons on the African plains, but the idea gradually expanded to embrace other countries and their wildlife, in the process giving the central image of the waterhole a certain metaphorical significance - and, of course, providing me with the perfect excuse to draw lots of animals from other parts of the wor [...]

    16. I read The Water Hole by Graeme Base. I read this book as my counting choice and it was found in the textbook on page 73.
