Book Description

Feb. 1 1995
Weaving, fishing, and storytelling are all part of this spirited book that celebrates Native American traditions as it teaches young children to count from one to ten. The book's whimsical illustrations, reminiscent of Beatrix Potter, glow with brilliant color and are filled with fascinating detail. Each number introduces a facet of traditional Native American culture, such as Pueblo corn dances or Navajo weaving, and the simple, rhyming text is enhanced by a brief afterword on Native American customs. Ideal for storytime or bedtime, this is a book sure to leave children counting rabbits instead of sheep.

Product Description

From Amazon

This winner of the Parents Magazine "Best Book of the Year" award is a simple counting book that celebrates Native American culture--and rabbits, of course. Each of Sylvia Long's detailed, painterly double-page illustrations has an old-fashioned quality that gives the book the feel of classic children's literature from the turn of the century. The accompanying text is a simple, rhythmic series of rhyming couplets. "Three busy messengers sending out the news" has three rabbits using one of their blankets to send smoke signals across a grassy river valley; "Four clever trackers looking for some clues" shows intrepid little hunters with bows and arrows examining the enormous paw-print of a bear. After "Ten sleepy weavers knowing day is done," an extra panel shows one rabbit hunched over a campfire while the other nine sleep soundly. A cut above the mass of counting books. (Baby to age 4) --Richard Farr --This text refers to the Board book edition.

From Publishers Weekly

"There is a great deal of information and entertainment packed into this unusual counting book," said PW about this clever introduction to Native American culture. Ages 4-8.

4.0 out of 5 stars Positives and Negatives April 3 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This children's book is illustrated marvelously. The illustrations emphasize exciting colors and add great detail to the expressions on the rabbit's faces. Overrall, this book is classroom orientated because it reiterates the numerals 1-10 and provides a great review to a math lesson. Also, the rhyme scheme is clever and entertaining. However,some of the words that are used are not in young reader's lexicon. If it is thought to be used as a social studies connection, it may be unappropriate for educating children about Native Americans. The pictures imply that Native Americans always live in tipis' and wear feathers in their hair.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful Counting book Dec 8 2002
Format:Board book
Having Native American children I am always looking for books for them. I purchased this for my 18 month old (hard cover version). He loves to look at it. He will pull it out at least once a day to look at it. I've even noticed his 8 year old brother sneaking a peek more than once. I love the vibrant, without being bright, illustrations. They are intracate yet simple. The rabbits are adorable. The book starts with one rabbit and continues through to 10. The rabbits are in Native American regalia and doing traditional Native activites

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise for "Ten Little Rabbits" April 22 2000
Format:Board book
A clever variation on the 10 little Indians theme, this book adds instead of subtracts, and no one gets killed. Beginning with one lonely traveler, the book progresses to 10 sleepy weavers "knowing day is done." Each picture shows rabbits attired in Native American constumes and engaged in activites - fishing, hunting, weaving, storytelling - common to Indians. The illustrations are gorgeous. Though light in touch, they carry an admirable visual weight.
