Review by: Catherine G. on Jan. 10, 2016 :
Ten Zany Birds is a short, beautiful book by Sherry Ellis with amazing illustrations by Charu Jain! It tells the story of birds in a tree through rhyme. As we follow the events, we encounter visitors to their home and what happens, counting down as each bird leaves for various reasons. The pictures are just gorgeous and are brilliant displays of colour, sure to please any reader. The rhymes introduce the children to varying colours, counting and actions. Overall, it's a very enjoyable book.

This is a marvelously fun story about ten birds having a party. Each one goes away for a different reason. Kids won't even realize they're learning to count backwards. My son can already count, but he learned a new word he loves to use: Zany! I love the beautiful illustrations. So colorful and full of life.

This little story rekindled a childhood memory. We had a rhyme with ten little African boys becoming less one by one because something happened to them. This is a politically correct new version of it. The water-colours are very pretty and a bit different and more complex than many of today's picture books. Placing text is always an issue with picture books and here it was solved pretty good. This book, read by mom, will surely delight your very small child. It would certainly help to use a large device to enlarge the individual birds and look at the fine details. Well done and highly recommended.

Beautifully illustrated with lots of color! Lots of learning things to talk about as you read: color, number, stripes, etc. And the story line that takes you through the book is precious! I can't wait to share this with my granddaughter!
