One by one woodland animals open presents left for them in the snow in this backwards counting book: “10 little Christmas presents, in snow so fine…mouse gets earmuffs! Now there are nine.” The final page challenges readers to remember which animal received each gift. The simplicity of both the story and the bold-brushed watercolors will engage the preschool-to-kindergarten set. Teachers may choose to use this title when introducing the concept of counting backwards.

Great for use in storytimes with tots, preschoolers, and even older kids who might have special needs. The simple countdown of Christmas presents given to each woodland animal introduces little ones to counting, while the memory game at the end (asking children to recall which animal received which present) makes this an interesting holiday read I could see special needs kids enjoying. This story could translate very well into a felt board presentation as well.

fun rhyming/counting book (countdown) would try with a group at outreach--merry christmas is the santa bear's message for the ending.

Ten Christmas presents sit in the snow for the animals. Best part: Anticipating what was in the packages. Ages 2-5.
