A delightful bedtime book.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
According to PW , ``This beguiling picture book, with a palette of eye-filling colors, appears to arise naturally from the love binding a father and his little ``big'' girl who turn bedtime into playtime with a rhyming game.'' Ages 3-6. (May)
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
New in board book format, Molly Bang's Ten, Nine, Eight is a rhythmic count down to bed as a young girl and her father count their ways through nightly rituals of bath, stuffed animals, dressing, and good night kisses. The rhymes are calming for young babies and may help toddlers who fight the bedtime experience. The illustrations are as gentle as the words from "10 small toes all washed and warm" to "1 big girl all ready for bed."

I love this book for it's multicultural theme, teaching values and charming heartwarming story of a Dad, putting his daughter to bed. It's one of my son's favorite books in his entire collection. A must read!

If you had to buy only one board book, this one is it. Although this jem won the Caldecott award for its illustrations (bright, bold, and fascinating to young readers), the book's language -- rhythm, appropriate length per page -- are also award-worthy, and the combination of illustration and language is what earn this book the 5-star rating from me and my 11-month-old. We read it everyday, twice : )
