"Just Picked" is a feature here at A Life Bound By Books. This is a place where I'll be spotlighting new (and old) childrens book or picture books for parents and new readers. It's a place to talk about books for a younger group and to try to help create a new generation of readers.
Title: Ten Little Beasties Author's & Illustrator's: Ed & Rebecca Emberley Publisher: Roaring Brook Press Age Range: 2 - 6 From:the Publisher, Thank You!
Synopsis:If there's one thing beasties love to do, it's dance! When one little beastie is joined by two little, three little, and more little beasties, we count UP until there's a party on the page. But when one of the little beastie starts trouble, it's time to start counting DOWN.
Review: 2 Stars - The art of Ten Little Beasties is what makes this book. The text, mainly adding and subtracting - adding a beast on each page until reaching ten, then subtracting one each page until getting back down to one again - is a simple way for younger kids to start to learn how to count and some very simple visual math. While reading this book wasn't a stellar story, it was the abstract art that I loved to see change from page to page. It was the art that I sincerely was fascinated with. I just wish that art such as this would have had a bit of a story to it.
I haven't read this one to my younger nieces yet because I don't think this would grab them, however I can see boys taking to the monsters with ease, especially around Halloween.

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.
