Reading level: Ages 4-8
Pages: 24 Hard-other 7 1/2 x 6 1/4
Date Published: November 2010

This inventive pop-up, featuring the mischievous stars of Jean-Luc Fromental and Joëlle Jolivet’s 365 Penguins, starts with ten penguins on an icy shore. One by one, they playfully disappear from the scene as the text counts down from ten to zero. The flaps embedded in the book facilitate the story—readers can make the penguins disappear and reappear! It’s a stylish, humorous take on a counting book with winter-friendly, penguin-filled pop-ups.

We are always on the look out for more counting books and this one is a great addition to our shelves. “10 Little Penguins” is a cute and interactive pop-up book with arrows to pull, push and twist. I loved these type of books as a child. Right now with supervision AppleBlossom already loves it, though I would definitely hazard caution of leaving her alone with it if you want your arrows intact. The rhythm and rhyme of the count down is a pleasant read on it’s own and all in all this is a great keeper shelf children’s book.

*Thanks to Abrams Books for Young Readers for providing a copy for review.*
