Deck the Halls: 10 Trim-the-Tree'ers--A Holiday Counting Book by Janet Schulman

Kids are counting the days to Christmas, and what better time to learn to count! The jolly kids from Janet Schulman's 10 Trick-or-Treaters are back just in time to reinforce those important counting skills in her brand-new board book 10 Trim-the-Tree'ers (Alfred A. Knopf, 2010).

The ten are togged in Christmasy costume--with halos, Rudolph antlers, or peppermint red caps--and they total up the ornaments as they trim their little tree. There are ten pretty presents under the tree, nine candles in the menorah on the mantle, eight candy canes to hang on the boughs, not to mention seven snowmen, six snowflakes, five reindeer, four Santas, three angels, two strings of bright colored lights, and of course, one golden star to top the tree.

TEN TRIM-THE-TREE'ERS, NOW THEIR JOB IS DONE.
IT'S TIME TO SERENADE THEIR PETS AND EVERYONE!

What better ways to count down the days than with Schulman's little tree trimmers, who conclude by happily suiting up for the snow and head out to sing Christmas carols when their work is done. As in her previous seasonal counting books, Schulman provides an appendix where young children can practice their counting, and the youngest lap-sitters will have lots of fun finding and counting all the jolly ornaments on her well-trimmed tree.
