This is a fun pop-up book that goes through the various things that happen to ten penguins. On each page something dramatic and terrible happens that results in one penguin going away. Eventually, when all of them have left, it is revealed that nothing bad actually happened. The penguins were just playing a trick! This book could be useful for teaching students about subtraction. On each page there is a pull tab that the reader can move to make the penguin discussed disappear. This is a great vi ...more

This book is a gold-medalist at my house. First of all, it's a pop-up book, so its automatically a favorite with my kids. But it also has story, and character, and setting! I don't mind reading it five or six times a day because I love it as much as my kids do!

The book chronicles the misadventures of 10 artic penguins with ingenious pop ups that show the demise of each black and white bird, from number eight who gets captured by a polar bear in a chef's hat to number three who goes 'BANG' when h

My 21 month old adores this book, it has been one of his favourites since he was about 4 months old.
The story is great, it covers counting and we love that it rhymes and has quite a dark humour to it too. When one of the penguins goes BANG from eating too much my son roars with laughter.
The book is chocked full of bright colours and bold illustrations, every single page is a pop up scene with a pull tab to make something move too so is really interactive. We read it together so that nothing get

We are always on the look out for more counting books and this one is a great addition to our shelves. "10 Little Penguins" is a cute and interactive pop-up book with arrows to pull, push and twist. I loved these type of books as a child. Right now with supervision AppleBlossom already loves it, though I would definitely hazard caution of leaving her alone with it if you want your arrows intact. The rhythm and rhyme of the count down is a pleasant read on it's own and all in all this is a great ...more

My son brought this to me this morning to read and I have to say it's been a favorite for a long time. It's a count down from 10 interactive pop up book about how penguins disappear one at a time in very grim ways...one explodes from eating too much krill, another sleds into a whales mouth, or gets caught and eaten by fishermen and so on until there are no penguins left...but surprise they were just playing tricks. Now that he is starting to read he enjoys it even more.

I would suggest a revision of this title to: The Most Terrible and Tragic Tale of Ten Little Penguins! If you have a dark sense of humor, you may enjoy this strange little volume. I am giving it five stars for "it was amazing" because it truly WAS amazing--amazing that this macabre little thing ever was published, and as a 'children's book', no less. O, publishing industry, you DO still have some life and sense of humor left in you! Rejoice! Weep! I cannot wait for the major motion picture adapt ...more

By the same authors as "365 Penguins", which we loved so much, this pop up has a great rhyming scheme and teaches children to count backwards from 10. Hilarious escapades cause the penguins to drop like flies (while bowling, playing with a whale, cooking in an igloo, ice skating, sledding, swimming, etc). The pop up pages each have a pull tab to hilariously illustrate the action in the picture. We loved this penguin-themed picture book, and would recommend it to anyone with very young children!

Text by Jean-Luc Fromental. Illustrations by Joelle Jolivet. Art Director Gerard Lo Monanco. Paper Engineer Bernard Duisit. English translation by Amanda Katz. With pull tabs, twists, and swings, this funny counting book about "losing" penguins to predators and other dangers is saved at the end when it's told they are all playing a trick on the reader. Bold, "simple" illustrations really stand out. The rhythm and flow is great.
Debbie
I am always impressed by pop-up books, especially when they have parts that turn and spin. This was a nice little counting book that would help young children learn a little about penguins while enjoying the 3-D illustrations.
Cara
I found this pop-up to be pretty disturbing. I don't think I would read it to a small child, unless we started from the end.
Amira
We have the French version of this. It rhymes and we LOVE it. Lots of tags to pull and penguins going 'Bang'!
