Review by

Ten Shiny Snails is a counting book with rhyme and a bit of repetition. The story takes place in a forest where ten snails are playing at night. One by one each get distracted, leaving the group until one snail is left. This lone snail goes and looks for his friends and when they reunite there are ten snails at the end. The snails are tactile and protrude from the right side pages making it easier to count. There are also cut-out holes in the left pages that correspond with the number of snails that are left. However, the book's illustrations are bright and busy and at times compete with the colors of the snails. This could make if confusing for a child when counting. The book does count downwards making it a bit more challenging.Age Appropriate: 2 to 6 years oldGalloway, R. (2010). Ten shiny snails. New York: Scholastic.
