Paddington Bear counts to twenty, from one Paddington Bear to twenty marmalade sandwiches.

PreSchool-K--A Bear Called Paddington (Houghton, 1960) is the shadow of his former self in these two concept books. Peggy Fortnum's original sketches of this well-meaning, bumbling bear have been copied, expanded, and brightly colored. Paddington's personality is shown only in symbols, such as his famous and favorite hat on the H page of the alphabet book or 20 marmalade sandwiches, the highest number represented in the counting book. Both volumes are oversized and clear, but there are many more alphabet and counting books available that are more imaginative and humorous. This fine, polite bear is being diminished and misused; disregard these slim offerings and go back to the original Paddington stories. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elem . School, Durham, NH
