Book Review: Ten Zany Birds by Sherry Ellis

25605484I recently received a signed copy of this book. The only problem is I can't remember where I got it from. I've searched through all my email records and through the contests I've entered and still have no clue how I got this book. So I either received a copy for review or I won it through a contest.

In Ten Zany Birds, 10 birds get together. One by one they dwindle down to the last bird as each bird flies off for  different reasons.  There are striped birds, spotted birds, and one with purple polka dots. Only one bird will be left standing.

This book was very cute and was in the vein of Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. It counts down to the last bird and uses some repetitive rhyming. Both my son and I loved the illustrations. The colors are very kid friendly and my son was asking me how it was drawn. He was obsessed with the spider that was on nearly every page and had a fun time finding it each time we turned a page.While this was a bit more for younger readers my son really enjoyed it and I have a feeling this one will get a couple of readings in our house.

5 out of 5 stars

*I received a signed copy of this book but do not know if it was in exchange for a review. Either way this has not influenced me and I have given an honest review
** This book was read with my 8 year old severely learning disabled son and reflects his opinion and how he did with the book.

Thanks for the review! This is part of the World of Ink Tour. The person who directs the tour instructed me to send the copy to you. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

"Kid tested... mother approved." Ten Zany Birds has a lot going for it. Kids love animals. Kids love numbers and counting. Kids love rhymes. Kids love bright colors. I have a theory that titles with numbers and the letter "Z" in them are also a hit with kids either consciously or subconsciously. Thank you for reviewing a great book by a great friend, Sherry Ellis.

What a wonderful review! I love the cover and the book sounds great. I can see why it would appeal to young readers. Now I want to look for the spider. :)

Thanks for sharing!
