Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 This revised and redesigned edition of Crews' 1968 book contains several changes that give the title more appeal. The larger format makes the book a more useful choice for story hour sessions. Larger and more legible type makes reading easier for beginners. Although the rhymed text to introduce objects from one to ten remains almost unchanged, the colors of the objects have been altered, and textures have been added for visual variety. The rake now moves through tiny grass bits, for example, and the piggy bank looks more like a pink porker than did its brown predecessor. Crews' unmistakable graphic style is still evident, and the striking visuals are the book's strong feature. Unfortunately, Crews does not avoid one pitfall that plagues many picture books: the relationship between objects of different sizes. The two dots that are the fox's eyes are the same size as the two in the eyes of keys on the opposite page. Hence, each key is almost as large as the head of a fox. An addition in the new version is a series of black dots to be counted at the end of the book. Despite some weaknesses, the book is a good choice for collections in which straightforward counting books are in high demand.Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, Minn.

In fact, quite a bit can be done with a big dot. I gave my son and daughter some large dots and we had fun experimenting with what we could make out of them.

However, art is not my reason for giving a thumbs up to this book. I like its math side.

For toddlers there is counting. And for older children (I would say preschool age) there is an chart at the end of the book which shows dots and numbers from 1 to 5 on the first page and 6 to 10 on the next two pages (only 5 dots fit per page). Having the numbers and dots shown in this manner is a marvelous way to let little ones see the `ladder' shape of the number pyramid. And an opportunity to point out how moving up or down the stairs is equivalent to addition and subtraction.

We like this book. It has a cute concept that is appealing to young children. (Toddler to Preschool)

4 Stars for being of mathematical as well as artistic interest.

Great for your Kindergarten classroom. The book is simply different illustrations of pics you can make with black dots. We use black circle stickers (very cheap) and give each child 10. The class book that follows is a hit in the classroom library!

This is a fun book for young children. With the large pictures and font, the book begs to be touched and held and read! It could be used to reinforce a math lesson on counting objects. Afterward, the teacher/parent could give each child ten black dots, crayons, and paper and have them use their imagination to see what they could make. I think every young child should have a chance to hear or read this book!

Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews is a great book!!! I heard it recommended in a few different places so we decided to read it. Both my son and I were interested to see what the next picture was going to look like as well as counting the number of dots on the page just to make sure it was the right number.

Each page gives a different number with a picture drawn around that number of dots. There is one dot that makes a sun or a moon. Two dots makes the eyes of a fox or the eyes of keys that open locks. It goes from one to ten which my son was interested in around 2-3 years old. It has a good rhythm to the writing as well as simple pictures that the kids enjoy. Amazon recommends the book for ages 4-8 years old but I would say that it is good for a much younger audience too for first exposures to numbers. Great for parents or teachers to introduce the numbers, counting and the pictures that correspond. It is much better then some other bedtime books that we get to read every night at our child's request so introduce this book and see what your child thinks.

My little guy loves numbers and math so we started with the chart at the end of the book and made our own. It was super fast for me to make up with a marker and a ruler on a regular 8 1/2 x 11 piece of copy paper. I drew the line and wrote in the numbers and my four year old used the Bingo "dotters" to make the dots. He counted and re-counted each line to make sure that there were the right number on each line. He had a little trouble fitting in 10 on the last line but made the last one squeeze in. If you don't have the bingo markers, use stickers for the same effect. It is a great craft to follow up on reading the book. If you want to see a picture or other craft ideas, check out my post here: [...]

This is a great counting book for any toddler and small child. Going from one to ten, Mr. Crews uses black dots to represent things children can see day-to-day. My 2-yr-old found this book at our local library. He wanted to read it so often that I bought a copy for home. Now we read it almost every day & he never seems to get bored. This is an older book & the pictures/images reflect this-- the (obsolete) radio with four black dots for its knobs is an example. However, it still resonates with children and my son enjoys each page. His favorite page has the six marbles in a person's hands. I can't turn the page until he has put his hands on the pages to pretend he's holding the marbles as well. He also loves the last page with ten balloons flying away after being stuck in a tree. He insists on counting all ten balloons before we turn the page. The end of the book "reviews" the dots from one to ten and is a nice way to review counting from one to ten and beyond. The book is great for counting as well as early reading.

My 16 month old fell hard for this simple counting book. Though my husband and I are so sick of reading this one, we have to oblige several times a day. Baby has had it over a month and still chooses it over & over again. This book doesn't look like much but it clearly resonates with toddlers. The pictures are simple and graphic and emphasize spotting the dots. I know it will grow with him as Baby becomes ready to count. I wish we had purchased a board book version because the page with the snowman's face is getting mushy from all the kisses it receives.

My Kindergarten class loved this book. Yes, the book is somewhat small for a whole-class read aloud.. but my students still enjoyed looking at the pictures. I had explained before we read the book that they were going to be doing an activity similar to what they see in the book and to pay close attention because they may get some ideas of what they could do with their dots. I think getting the students ready for the extension activity by reading this book was very helpful and it was able to show them all the pictures you could make with dots and a little imagination! Great Book!!
