10 Trim-the-Tree’ers: A Holiday Counting Book by Janet Schulman

Schulman, Janet. 10 Trim-the-Tree’ers: A Holiday Counting Book, illustrated by Linda Davick. Alfred A. Knopf (Random House), 2010. $8.99. PICTURE BOOK. 10 neighbor children put on 8 different types of ornaments on the Christmas tree: star, lights, angels, elves, reindeer, snowflakes, snowmen, and candy canes. Numbers 9 and 10, include menorah candles and 10 presents under the tree. The rhymes often feel forced and do not flow well from one number to the next. Purchase this book for the colorful and energetic illustrations. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
