It's Time For Counting is a Barney Home Video that was released on January 13, 1998.


When the numbers from Stella's alarm clock get missing, Barney and the kids help search for the rest of the numbers. They head to the school library, where they read some classic children's stories. When all the numbers are returned to the alarm clock, Stella has a very special surprise for Barney and his friends!
