I thought this story was great! An African American family is preparing a meal. Throughout the story they are counting up to 10 then back down. I thought this story was fun. The illustration were very cute. I think a kindergarten or pre-k class would benefit from this book. ( )

Feast for 10 by Cathyryn Falwell is a counting book for children. It shows an African-American family going to the store, buying the groceries, and coming home to prepare the meal and eat. The family does everything together including cooking and sitting down together to eat.

I like this book because it shows everyone working together as one team and helping each other. It not only shows the number and gives the words, but also shows pictures to illustrate what is said.

This book could be used in many ways in a classroom setting. It could be used as picture book, a beginning to read book, and a book about working together.

Pick this one up for the awesome illustrations and then enjoy the story. This is a counting book that counts up to 10 and back down again all within the course of preparing for and serving dinner. Wonderful illustrations. Nice to see an extended family all sitting down to a meal together. ( )

Feast For 10 by Cathryn Farwell is the story of a family preparing to cook up a feast. Counting from one to ten, the story begins in a grocery store and continues on to the family's home.

Personal Reaction
I enjoyed the simplicity of this book. And felt most children would be able to relate because they have either cooked or shopped with their families. This book offers multiculturalism as the family is African American and is a fun way to incorporate numbers or counting.

Classroom extention
1. Have children create a grocery list for their favorite meal.
2. Collage of food they cut from various magazines.
3. Trip a local grocery store.
