This book goes on a journey with Native Americans (rabbits), while counting a new number on each page. There isn't much information that is learned or a story plot. The only thing that I found interesting was the information in the back of the book about Native Americans. I wouldn't use this book in a classroom. ( )

Ten Little Rabbits helps introduce children to the Native American culture through colorful illustrations and the simple depiction of aspects of Native American life. This book, when used within the classroom can be used as part of a cultural and historical introduction to Native Americans. Students can be asked to research the colorful blanket designs to find which Native American tribe may have used them, as well as be asked to research whether the daily life depicted in the book is factual to the daily life of Native Americans.

Counting book that describes what life was like as a native American. Great learning book for 2nd and 3rd grade. Liked the book.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0811810577, Paperback)

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
