Synopsis

Ten Little Rabbits by Virginia Grossman

Weaving, fishing, and storytelling are all part of this spirited book that celebrates Native American traditions as it teaches young children to count from one to ten.

Reviews

-- FIVE OWLS,

April 1991 Grossman interprets the cultures of various American Indian tribes through a counting book in which the characters are rabbits dressed as Indians. Though this may sound a bit precious, it's not: the gravity of the characters

-and-watercolor artwork that stretches across wide, double-page spreads. The illustrations are interpreted in brief rhymed couplets (one line per spread): One lonely traveler riding on the plain./ Two graceful dancers asking for some rain. A key to the pictures, found at the end of the book, explains how each relates to the customs or artifacts of a particular tribe. Bits about the tribes may be helpful, but the information given is minimal. Preschool and kindergarten teachers looking for picture books that cut across the curriculum will find this a good way to combine a unit on native Americans with counting practice. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY,

June 1991 Not a book about numbers, but a quiet, respectful survey of some Native American customs organized through the structure of a counting rhyme, populated by rabbits dressed in traditional garb, from one lonely traveler riding on the plain to ten sleepy weavers knowing day is done. Notes at the back identify each tribe represented (Plains, Pueblo, Great Lakes, Northwestern, and Southwestern peoples), and provide information about the pictures. The rabbits have an earnest charm reminiscent of Marjorie Flack's industrious family
