Ten Black Dots gets children counting and excited to do so. The pictures used are things preschoolers and young children recognize. The children I have used it with are always excited to count the black dots on each page and share the number with friends. It is always a favorite on the math book shelf and in the regular library of my classrooms. There is even a review in the back of the book which children often use to quiz each other.
I highly recommend this book for parents and teachers.
