Book Review: 'Little Goblins Ten' by Pamela Jane

✰✰✰✰ Counting to ten just got a lot more fun with this Halloween themed counting book by author Pamela Jane. The fun starts with a big mommy monster and her little monster one, who she sends scampering into the forest. From there the fun continues with a variety of seasonal characters like ghosties two, zombies three, and more…all the way up to little goblins ten. Kids will appreciate the singsong verse and delight in guessing which creature is featured next.

The Bottom Line: With a fun, haunted twist, this picture book will seem familiar to those acquainted with the nursery rhyme, “Over in the Meadow.” Little Goblins Ten is an adorable book the little ones will enjoy. Illustrated in soft watercolor tones, the pictures are engaging and fun with just a hint of spookiness. This Halloween themed book features just the right amount of ghosties, goblins, werewolves, and more without being too creepy. Kids ages 4 – 6 will enjoy reading along with their favorite adult.

Details: Little Goblins Ten written by Pamela Jane and illustrated by Jane Manning. Hardcover picture book published in 2011 by Harper. 32 p. ISBN: 978-0-06-176798-2
