Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
Schulman has written a nice holiday picture counting book complete with whimsical illustrations by Davick. It is time to trim the Christmas tree so ten little neighbors find a tree and bring it indoors for decorations. First thing to go up is one shiny golden star while another little neighbor starts putting two strings of lights around the big tree. Next come three little angels glowing against the green tree, while four Santa's elves make toys. Five reindeer decorations are added by two children while two others sit in a chair looking at a book. The tree is filling out with six lacy snowflakes that magically appear. Seven jolly snowmen, eight candy canes, nine menorah candles, and ten colorful presents finish up this brightly decorated tree. But wait, is that Santa being pulled into the room by a little neighbor girl? Ten trim-the-tree-ers have finished their job so they leave the house and begin to sing "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" The last page displays the numbers 1 to 10 along with all the Christmas tree trimmings next to their corresponding numbers. This delightful holiday book will teach children their numbers, as well as entertain in a jolly old way. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi

PreS-K—The kids from 10 Trick-or-Treaters (Knopf, 2005) are ready to trim a tree in their building's lobby. The youngsters dress for the occasion; each roundheaded child is adorned with a halo, antlers, or red-and-white stripes, placing corresponding ornaments on the tree (three little angels, five reindeer, eight candy canes). Nine menorah candles "mark the gift of light" on the mantle, and they all go caroling when their job is done. A one-page summary of the ornaments and appropriate numerals appear at the end, prompting beginning counters to turn back the pages and count some more.—Joanna K. Fabicon, Los Angeles Public Library

This book has probably been read at least 50 times since we received it a few weeks before Christmas. My four year old grandson insisted I read this to him every time I sat down. He especially loves the last page as it counts down 10 Christmas items and he can count each of them as he "reads" what is pictured. He also loves 10 Trick or Treaters and that's the reason I bought this for him and both have been read over and over dozens of times. I highly recommend it for kids that are very close to being able to read.

It's a small board book so the pictures are small. Illustrations make it a little confusing for young kids to count some of the objects ( if they are dressed the same as what u r looking for ) or not all objects are in one place. Best for preschool age and up for counting.
