It's picnic day and we're filling up our grocery cart with our favorite goodies. Wait! Do we have the right number of items to check out at the special 10 Items or Less register? This rollicking rhyme features playful illustrations of children's favorite supermarket staples. From peanut butter and cookies to juicy watermelon, shopping will become an adventure as children count the number of items (up to ten) placed in their shopping carts. Complete with ten press-out pieces and a large fold-out page at the end, young readers can place their items (press-out pieces) on the picnic blanket (fold-out page) at the end of the story. This board book is sure to making counting to ten fun over and over again!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Calmenson’s 1985 book Ten Items or Less gets a new lease on life with an interactive board book format and cheerful new artwork from Christy. A girl with dark frizzy hair helps her mother during a shopping trip, and readers can participate, too, removing 10 cardboard pieces (“milk to drink” and “cookies to munch”) before heading to the express lane. Readers can then accompany mother and daughter on a picnic, as the final pages unfold into a blanket with a space for each item. Ages 1–4. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this oversized, heavy page, board book, there are 10 play pieces. The premise is that the young girl is off going shopping because it's picnic day. Strolling down the first grocery store aisle our young protagonist spies some peanut butter and grape jelly—the press out pieces include a jar of peanut butter and of course the jar of jelly. Then she sees some oatmeal bread and now that we have our peanut butter, bread and jelly; well we need some milk to drink. It wouldn't be much of a picnic without some delicious fruit; and in this shopping trip we have some red apples and pink water melon. How about some dessert? Our young girl is attracted to the raisins and cookies. Is she done yet? No cheese and chips are added to the shopping cart. Now it is time to pay for all of this food. The question posed to readers is does she have 10 items or less? The play pieces can be seen with Arabic numerals above each and then counted. The last spread is a double gatefold resulting in a large picnic blanket with cut-outs for each of the picnic items. The illustrations are cheerful and amusing, and the whole premise is very cleverly executed in a book that should be fun although less so if the pieces are lost. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
