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. ( )

A family shops for their family dinner counting all the things they need.

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.

This book is a counting book that follows a family from step one to step ten and back again on making a meal. ( )

This counting book portrays an experience familiar to many children: a family shopping for, cooking, and finally eating dinner. The counting actually helps create anticipation as we see the the tasty ingredients first purchased, then prepared. The book uses both numerical and word representations of numbers and counts to ten twice, reinforcing the counting concept.

What I liked most about this book was the subtext not directly related to the numbers. We see a family joyfully preparing a healthy meal together (the kids help) and sitting down to eat together. Moreover, there is some sharing of the work traditionally assigned only to mothers. The mother does do the shopping and most of the cooking, but the father holds the baby and recycles the cans--a small step, but something. The numbers are clearly represented, the illustrations are easy to count and cheerful. This book is appropriate for ages 2 to 6. ( )
