My children love books, my 7 year old loves to read to her 4 year old brother. This book they both loved! My daughter loved the colorful Illustrations of the different types of birds, and my son loved the rhyming text and counting/subtracting the birds on each page. They both were excited to see what birds were left on the next page, and what will happen! I know they will want to read this over and over again. This is a very good book in my opinion for pre-readers and early readers.
About the book:
Ten Zany Birds have a party in a tree, singing and dancing. Five have stripes, three have spots, and one has purple polka dots. They’re all having fun, but one by one, they become distracted.
One is frightened by a loud plane. One gets hungry. One wants to race and another needs a bath. Only one stays to sing in the tree, but who will it be?
Ten Zany Birds is a fun, beautifully illustrated picture book. As parents and teachers read, children are introduced to counting and basic subtraction skills. Whenever a bird leaves, the number of striped, spotted, and polka-dotted birds changes, teaching the application of simple classification rules.
Whimsical and entertaining, Sherry Ellis’s tale of ten silly, distractible little birds is an excellent choice for both pre-reader storybook time and early readers.
