 Count the brownies up to 10 as they help out with chores around a old cottage house.
 (from Amazon)


 Learning to count is a very important learning lesson that all children need in their formative years.  The book is written as a folk tale. The book is about counting 1-10 with Brownies, the characters used to help the child learn. The Brownies are a happy, loving bunch.  They pick up when the child has forgotten. They live in homes and usually come out at night.  The illustrations are full of imagination that go along with the counting process.  The child can learn new words along with their basic numbers.  The book will help the reader also, in learning how a child expresses himself or herself about the book.  It's a learning process all around. One thing about the book I thought was extremely special was that the author wrote it in a rhyming fashion.  Children loves rhyming words.  If they are interested in the rhyming words, the illustrations, then their attention will stay put on the book.  The author doesn't give the child a chance to become bored.  The book is exciting and educational.  The child will have a fun time learning how to count 1-10.
 The story begins with one Brownie watching children sleep.  Then we have two Brownies trying to put clothes and toys away that were tossed everywhere by messy little boys and girls.  As the story goes on , one Brownie at a time is added until we have 1-10 Brownies.
 I felt the book was written with young children in mind as the words, the rhyming, the Brownies and the learning were all geared for them.  This is a wonderful children's book that will find its place on the bookshelf to be read and read again.   Pretty soon your child will be able to count 1-10 all be themselves.

I would recommend this book to young children and their school teachers, parents, sitters, grandparents and anyone who wants to see the children learn and have fun while doing  it.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book, TEN BUSY BROWNIES from the author, Talia Haven for my view of this book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 FLOWERS.
