Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol A. Flowers
Mr. Panda keeps his cool as his restaurant fills with patrons; from the first tired and hungry elephant to two weary lions, three little pigs escaping from you-know-who, until the party of ten chickens. Mr. Panda proves to be a gracious host who creates a special table for one last patron, making sure he feels as welcome as the others. Short rhyming quatrains move the story along. Detailed pictures of joyful critters invite young readers to count the groups as they slide, waddle and tumble in for dinner. Also available with an audiotape.

    Highly Recommended

    My Review: What a great and fun way to teach children how to count from 1 - 10 with different animals visiting the Panda Palace. Also teaches and show different type of animals in the animal kingdoms. The rhymes are so adorable that children would ask for the book to be read over and over again.

    A must have for your children's library. Great illustrations by Nadine Westcott bring the story rhymes to life. The message in this book is no matter what there is always room for one more.



    FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    Great counting book

    Both of my children loved this book. When my son was about 4 this was the only book that he wanted me to read. He would not let me turn the page without letting him count how many 'diners' were arriving. Cute illustrations and also the book is fun for mom to read each part as if I were one of the animals.

    Great counting fun

    This book is one of our favorites. We love the cast of characters, and Mr. Panda trying to keep them all happy. I'm always looking for counting, rhyming books.

    Cute Animals, Counting Fun, and Graciousness Too

    My son loved this book as a toddler. Have read to K-2nd grade classes. Kids love the illustrations and rhymes while learning to count and what it means to do your best. Illustrations have a level of detail that adults find fun, too.

    Great Rhyming and Counting book

    My four year old daughter LOVES this book. We borrowed it so many times from the Library that we finally had to buy our own copy. Good book for pre-readers. The rhymes make it easy to remember and my 4 year old loves to "read" this book to me.
