Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–This visually playful book counts dachshunds from 1 to 10 as they gather on a cushy blue chair. As the numbers rise, the pups become increasingly rambunctious, engaging with each other and the toys that have been brought to the chair. Once they total 10, all of the puppies fall asleep, but not for long. One by one, they awaken, and the text counts down as they begin a new game on the floor. Every page has a watercolor scene of the same chair and the changing number of lively dogs. This book will work well as a read-aloud with small groups, though the engaging puppies will encourage closer examination.Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ

From Booklist

When one little dachshund sitting on a chair proclaims, “I want a friend to sit with me,” a second joins him. With each turn of the page this simple counting book adds another doggy friend until there are 10 hot dogs chewing bones, wagging tails, tugging on socks, tumbling with a shoe, and so on. The whimsical watercolor illustrations show the puppies’ antics and include speech bubbles with onomatopoeic words as the dogs yip, yelp, and arf until finally, exhausted, they all fall fast asleep. One wakes up, jumps off the chair leaving “Nine little hot dogs still fast asleep. Shhhhh . . .” Now the speech bubbles offer up a series of colorful verbs as dogs snore, snuggle, sigh, and snooze. As the dogs tumble one by one off the chair, the playing cycle starts over and the refrain repeats. Coming full circle, one lone hot dog on the chair barks to awaken the nine companions now snoozing on the floor. With many concepts to explore—including addition, subtraction, and new vocabulary—this is a useful title for teachers. Preschool-Grade 1. --Patricia Austin

I buy a lot of stories about dachshunds for my granddaughter who loves my little hot dogs. This is a particularly cute one with cute pictures. She is only in kindergarten but she can read it and that is a plus, too.

My wife and I have a herd of young nieces and nephews who we often babysit on weekends, and we've accumulated a nice assortment of children's books for them. They're all in school now, and a little too old for this book, but we enjoyed the story nonetheless. It's a cute story that teaches kids to count forward from one to ten (and backward from ten to one) and to visually associate numbers with quantities of real objects - in this case, dachshunds (or weiner dogs, as we call them).

It's a nice book, with simple text and drawings that preschoolers will enjoy. The story can be read straight through in a few minutes, but the colorful artwork by author/illustrator John Himmelman is worth lingering over. The only reason I didn't give the book five stars is because I've seen other preschool illustrated learn-to-count books, and some of them have a rhyming story or more detailed graphics (or both) that may pique a child's interest a bit more than the simple text and artwork of "10 Little Hot Dogs."

"10 Little Hot Dogs" is a 9"x9½" hardback book with a dust cover. The large, colorful drawings and the simple text will appeal to preschoolers who are learning to count.

I think the pictures are cute, but the book is really not easy to read on my kindle fire. Each screen shows the book laid open showing two pages at a time...which would be fine if the story lined up..but it doesn't. So, you start reading about the 8 little dogs on the right side of the page & then turn the page on the kindle to see the rest of the lines about the 8 dogs. Also, I guess I expected it to rhyme, but it doesn't & I think it reads choppy.

My two year old granddaughter liked this book. She was able to follow along and it held her short attention span. The illustrations were nice and it read well on the kindle. I would recommend it for a child of similar age.

Quote: "I really like this book because it's all about dogs. It's really funny when the end comes. I feel sad for that last 'sausage' because he's all alone and he wants to play" - my 5-yr-old daughter.

We enjoyed this book a lot. There is a lot going on in the pictures making it fun to read. You can find something new for the children to point out all twelve thousand times they ask you to read it! We love weenie dogs!

Ten Little Hot Dogs is an adorable little book for small children just beginning to learn how to count--both forwards and backwards! The author, John Himmelman, has provided beautiful illustrations that will attract a young child's eye--they certainly impressed me! I read this book out loud to a neighbor's three year old son and he loved it.

Not only does this book give children the chance to learn the numbers one through ten, the dachshunds in the drawings are fantastic! Every child will become familiar with these great little dogs; and young kids will even learn what items dogs like to play with such as a shoe, a sock, a ball--and more. Of course, kids will learn new words as you read it with them--and this is a great way to bond with kids!
Others have noted that the book could have had rhyming verse or a bit more of a story to it and they have a point. However, I think most preschoolers will still like it.

I highly recommend this book for small children just beginning to count as they increase their vocabulary and understanding of how dogs including dachshunds play; they will be captivated by the sweet little story and those fine illustrations! You'll be able to bond with your child or grandchild; this is an excellent book that preschoolers will love.

This is a cute book for early readers or even toddlers who like dogs or are learning to count. Simple sentences with cute pictures. Great book for counting up and back to or from 10. One of those books that engages young learners by crossing content areas of reading and math.
