Ten Zany Birds by: Sherry Ellis

About the book:
Ten zany birds have a party in a tree, singing and dancing. Five have stripes, three have spots, and one has purple polka dots. They’re all having fun, but one by one, they become distracted.

One is frightened by a loud plane. One gets hungry. One wants to race and another needs a bath. Only one stays to sing in the tree, but who will it be?

Ten Zany Birds is a fun, beautifully illustrated picture book. As parents and teachers read, children are introduced to counting and basic subtraction skills. Whenever a bird leaves, the number of striped, spotted, and polka-dotted birds changes, teaching the application of simple classification rules.

Whimsical and entertaining, Sherry Ellis’s tale of ten silly, distractible little birds is an excellent choice for both prereader storybook time and early readers.   

Ten Zany Birds is an excellent read aloud book.  Very good book to help children with counting, adding and subtracting as well as classifying.  Wow!  Beautiful book for beginning readers as well.  Easy rhyming meter will help to boast confidence in reading.  The pictures are a water color.  Their whimsical effect sets just the right mood for young listeners as well as readers.
