This book has been totally lapped up by my 8 month old. He grasps the 3d tadpoles and gets extremely excited by the final surprise pop-up page which shows the tadpoles' tranformation into frogs. The pop-up opens out to make a croaking sound effect simply from the cut of .

Absolutely brilliant, colourful, fun and a simple learning tool for counting. I highly recommend it for young children - but be careful of the paper - it's not a board book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. William Oxley VINE VOICE on 1 Jan. 2010
Format: Hardcover
The book is both fun to read and educational at the same time, teaching your child the essential basics of the numbers 1 to 10. Whilst you read the child can feel the tadpoles that stick out from the page - with bright smiley faces!

Great for children from 18 months to 4 years old. Any older and they will whizz through it too quickly and be moving on to something a bit more challenging.

The book starts off with 10 tiny tadpoles and as each page is turned one tiny tadpole disappears. Each page has a short rhythm that leads into the next page.

So the book starts "Ten tiny radpoles wriggling in a line, one went chasing dragonflies so that left..." and you turn over the page to reveal the next sentence that starts with "Nine...".

PLUS there is a surprise on the final page with all ten tadpoles having changed into frogs, and in a pop-out format. My little girls face was an absolute joy when she turned the final page.

The only downside is the price when compared to the other books in the series eg Ten Little Ladybugs that have been discounted. But we received this as a gift and were very happy.

This is a wonderful book, my son loved it so much from the library that we bought our own copy. He's now almost a year and he will pick it out from a whole shelf of books and sit looking at it himself. He absolutely loves the last page pop-up... Trouble is he now checks the last page of all books to see if there is a pop up! Because he's so young the poor frogs have taken a bit of a battering with only being card, but that's not the books fault.
It's also a delight for the reader with its rhythm and rhyme and I never tire of reading it. I've just bought Ten caterpillars which I hope will be just as lovely. But I won't leave him alone with what I expect will be pop-up butterflies!
Thanks Debbie for a great book.

This was our second purchase from this series of books (we also have the snail one)and we weren't disappointed. Our 18 month old twin boys love it. They like to follow each page and touch the little coloured tadpoles. The poems and the illustrations are lovely and they get very excited when we open the last page and reveal the pop up frogs. It's just great!

...and adds basic subtraction to the mix too!

The pictures are great and colourful, and the last page pop out picture is lovely. The rhymes don't scan quite as well at 10 Chirpy Chicks but they are still good. The kids both love it.

Having bought one of these for my first grandchild, I have bought several more for the birth of friends babies. Absolutely delightful with a wonderful surprise at the end of the story! Worth every penny!

I actually bought this as gift having already got two of Debbie Tarbutts books (this one and Ten Wriggly Caterpillars). They are delightful books and help introduce counting to pre-schoolers.

My child was bought this book and loved it, I have now bought it for my niece. There are hard tadpoles on each page to count and touch and at the end a lovely pop up of ten frogs.
