Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A family's dinner preparations, from supermarket to table, are the foundation of what PW dubbed a "cozy counting book." Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4?Three of the most charming picture books to come along in recent years have been made available in book-on-tape format. All are of superior quality with strong narration. In Feast for 10 by Cathryn Falwell, the numbers one through ten are used to illustrate the story of a cheerful, extended family as they shop for and cook their dinner. Rain Player by David Wisniewski, the dramatic tale of Pik, who challenges the rain god to a game of pok-a-tok to save his drought-ridden village, comes to life with wonderfully intense narration. The best of the three new releases in this series is Tap Tap by Karen Lynn Williams, the story about a young Haitian girl who accompanies her mother to the market to sell oranges. They have to walk because Sasifi's mother can't afford to pay for them to ride the tap-tap (bus), so named because passengers tap on the side of the bus to tell the driver to stop. Circumstances finally allow them to ride the bus home. The narration by Margarita Taylor is superlative, with her rich, vibrant voice making you feel as if you are actually in Haiti. Backed by cheerful Caribbean music, her voice sweeps listeners into the story. A page-turn signal tells readers when to turn the pages. This is carefully explained at the beginning of each tape, along with a description of the first page of text, so children know where to begin the book. Any or all of these would be welcome additions to any library, but Tap-Tap is easily the best of the three.

This book has been around for a long time, but it continues to be a favorite in my classroom. It's one of those simple books that sparks so many different curriculum paths! Counting, number groupings, nutrition, cooperation, family activities, word choices, story writing, and more. It has also initiated collage art projects, quilt making, and paper mache vegetables! FEAST FOR 10 is a goldmine. I see that it's coming out in a board book soon, too. We have both the hardcover and several paperbacks in my class.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mica Jade on September 10, 2004
Format: Paperback
A sweet 1-10 counting book that has a nice rhyme scheme and builds its story by counting to ten, not once, but twice. The art designs feature a black extended family, however, this is not central to the story. What is emphasized is the feeling of family warmth and cooperation throughout as everyone pitches in to create the feast for ten. Children can also count the items in each picture that correspond to the poem. Well done.

This is a wonderful book. I have been using it for years in special education and preschool settings. Children always respond to the excellent illustrations and simple text. The pages easily correspond with the text making it a very satisfying counting and retelling experience.

Format: Paperback
Or about living in Africa, or living in the past, or some sort of troubles (modern or historical). It's so nice to just see a family doing what families *do*. (They even recycle!)

My nieces ask me to read this book to them often. It's a very fast book, suitable both for very young children and for slightly older ones. We love looking at various details - like the fact that "five kinds of beans" includes JELLY beans, or the fact that the baby sits on a lap at dinner. It's just a quick, sweet book.

Format: Paperback
We make sure at least 50% of the books we check out or buy depict non-White folks, as we are an adoptive family and I have a Black son along with three homegrown kiddos. I have noticed, most of those books we've found about African Americans, the ones not from Africa, are about racism, which I think is *vital* to talk about with kids, and we do, but I don't want every. single. book with Black people in it to be about racism. It gets heavy for the toddler and preschool set sometimes. This book is perfect!!!!! Illustrations are darling, we love it. For an extensive list of the children's books we've checked out or bought that are from other cultures, countries or just have non-White characters, follow this link: [....]

This is a delightful preschool or kindergarten age counting book about an Afro-American family shopping and preparing a holiday meal together. The illustrations are large and colorful, making the book good for group storytimes.

This book is wonderful. It reminds me of when I was younger. My mom would take me and my siblings to the store with her. When we got home I love to help her in the kitchen and watch her cook. I have learned so many things from her. It is something about cooking a meal with your family that brings you all closer. I have read this book to my kids as well as got them helping me cook meals and keep me company in the kitchen.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shanna A. Gonzalez on December 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
Feast For 10 is a warm, rhythmic story about a family taking a trip to the grocery store and preparing a meal to enjoy together. Each page introduces a number with an action: "One cart into the grocery store/ Two pumpkins for pie/ Three chickens to fry..." and so on, counting up to ten twice.

The book has much to commend it: on a cultural level, the story features a large family, which is cheerfully cooperative and hardworking without being annoyingly sweet. The children play an important role in the food preparation, and the ritual of sharing a meal together helps underscore their familial unity.

On an aesthetic level, this well-written book is illustrated with high-quality collage art, and it easily incorporates the counting exercise without detracting from the story. Because of its rhythm and rhyme, it will be well received by a preschool and early elementary audience.
