Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A young girl eagerly awaits her visit to her grandmother's house. As she is waiting for the special day to arrive, she counts down the days from ten to one and thinks of all the fun she will have with her grandmother. She is shown crossing days off the calendar and thinking of the activities she will do with her grandmother. They will paint their fingernails and toenails, visit the park, dress up and have a tea party, plant flowers, read books and bake cookies, play the piano and dance, eat ice cream and play flashlight games, and share big hugs. Next the little girl counts from one to ten detailing the things she will pack for her trip to her grandmother's house. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and dynamicÂľcontributing to the energy in the story. This book depicts the wonderful relationship this young girl has with her grandmother. This is also a wonderful book to use to teach counting down in a fun, playful way. It can be used as a read aloud book as well as a book for children to read themselves. 2002, Grosset & Dunlap, Publishers,
