Ten Little Farm Friends
Join the baby animals on their journey around the farm in this charming book. Young readers will delight in the colorful pages as they watch the die-cut farm animals decrease from 10 to 1 with each turn of the page.
The book features cut-outs through to each animal as it counts from 10 down to 1. The illustrations have lot of bright colors and fun scenery around the farm.
What I loved: This is a great way to talk about numbers, and children can help count the number of animals left on each page. The text is rhyming, which makes it fun to read aloud. It is also really fun to feature 10 different animals, which brings more animal fun. The illustrations are full of bright colors and farm scenery, which will definitely appeal to young children. Together with the cut-outs, it's a fun book to move through.
What left me wanting more: As a minor point, it would have been nice to mix in some father animals with the mothers. The pages are also geared towards older children, as it is a paperback book so with the cut-outs, they are a little easier for eager toddlers to tear. They are also more difficult (vs. board books) for young children to turn on their own. These make the book geared towards preschoolers/older toddlers.
Final verdict: A colorful counting book with farm animals, this delightful read will help children learn to count with rhyming fun.
