Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of the "Classic Books with Holes" series based on a children's nursery song, this one is based on the song, Ten Fat Sausages. Although this one may be unfamiliar to Americans, many of the other books feature the familiar songs of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, Old MacDonald and The Farmer in the Dell. The large, colorful books use these repetitious songs and accompanying cut-out pages to keep youngsters focused as the various stanzas of the song that are sung or read. In this book, a man on the street offers sausages for sale beginning with ten. As successive pages are turned and more and more children buy the sausages, the number he has for sale decreases and the number of children with sausages increases. Cut-outs at the bottoms of the pages keep track of amounts with printed numbers. Each sausage sold creates a cut-out from the previous page—until all are gone. It is a counting song by twos and readers can keep track. The cartoon-like drawings are humorous and add to the fair-like atmosphere. For those unfamiliar with the tune, it is printed on the outside of the book. The books are available as board books, soft cover books or Big Books with additional activities. 2005, Child's Play, Ages 4 to 7.
—Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
Carousel
A bit of a twist to the familiar counting song, in that the child can see where the sausages are going and the holes left when they disappear. Children love, and quickly master the repetitive singing game and with a large group the counting backwards can be demonstrated by using a diminishing throng of ten sausages (the children). They count how many are left after each verse. It encourages discussion and observation of numbers. Equally good one-to-one as in a large group. Colourful, playful illustrations help the text along.
