The dinosaur counts to ten over and over again. This is a great teaching for kinders because it helps them repeat numbers through rhyming words. ( )

I loved this imaginative book about how to count to ten. Most students enjoy anything that has to do with dinosaurs. What a great way to use dinosaurs to help children learn to count to 10!

This book rhymes and counts to ten. It would be a good bedtime story because it is short, however at the end the book does imply starting over again so the child might insist upon it. Just a fun read and what kid doesn't like dinosaurs?

With a repetitive way of learning how to count to ten with dinosaurs this book shows beautiful illustrations and learning about numbers.

This book is a counting book that shows dinosaurs in the bedroom. Their playfulness and giddiness of being entertained by toys is highlighted and shown in the various things that they find themselves getting into and becoming preoccupied by. There is one teddy bear, two balloons, and three toy trucks that the various species are enthralled by. At the end of the story, the reader is asked to "review" the inventory of the things that have been counted by re-reading the book. It is extremely interactive and a cyclical story telling format that is great for partner reading.
I think that the bold imagery of the book and is straight forwardness are really what make this appealing to young readers. It holds the attention of the reader and makes a sort of rhyme out of counting. Since it is so short, it is great that the author kept this in mind, because by doing so, she is able to write it in a way that calls the reader to continue and revisit the book over and over again.
