Reviews of Ten Zany Birds by Sherry Ellis

Ankit Saxena reviewed on Jan. 18, 2021

Illustrations are good but the setting of words with the former is mismatched. Also, this rhyming poetry is too plain. I didn't liked it much; but yeah, I really loved the pictures. But there must be more to it, I suggest. Though the author has good name in the category still it lacks a thing for me.

For me, its 3.0/5.0

This is an excellent book for kids to learn about subtraction. The illustrations are bright and colorful and go along well with the text. The rhyming works very well in the story. Each page could also be used to check addition facts because when it states how many birds are left, it also states what colors each bird has and how many of each kind of bird are left.
This book is an excellent resource for parents/guardians and teachers of preschoolers and for early childhood education.
I downloaded this book during a free promotional period and I am voluntarily sharing my review so others know about this great book.

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!
