Summary

"10 Little Bears,
Time to rise and shine.
One stayed in bed --
Then there were nine.

Young children will enjoy chanting along with the clever verses, and counting down from ten to one, as they watch the adorable bears get into all kinds of scrapes. This delightful counting book from the creators of the much-loved "Alphabears and "Numbears is sure to be a favorite at bedtime, or anytime.

Booklist Review

Ages 2^-5. Ten jolly bears arise from bed to play. One goes back to sleep, leaving nine. Nine bears ice skate. One takes a tumble, leaving eight. Eight build a playhouse. One gets a splinter, leaving seven. One by one these quintessential Hague bears are eliminated from their various activities. On the uncluttered left-hand page, the toddlerlike bears encircle the number. On the facing page, the bears are shown at play in scenes chock-full of detail and motion. Children can search for the bear being eliminated, follow the antics of the little blue-eyed bear with a pacifier, or find a favorite of their own. Fans of the Hagues will want to add this charming interactive book to the author-illustrator team's previous concept books, Alphabears (1984) and Numbears (1986). --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1In this concept book, the Hagues use their delightful characters from Alphabears (1995), Numbears (1995), and Calendarbears (1997, all Holt) to entertain and delight children. Beginning with 10/Little Bears,/Time to rise and shine./One stayed in bed/Then there were nine, the text counts down from 10 to 0 and ends with a surprise when all of the friends return to play again. Michael Hagues illustrations, done in watercolors with pen and ink, are filled with warmth and charm. Each bear has a distinct personality. Filled with descriptions of activities to which children can relate, the large-type text and easy language encourage beginning readers. This book can be used to introduce basic counting and subtraction concepts, and is also a fun read-aloud.Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA (c) Copyright 2010.
