" Cute counting board book! My three-month-old stares at the pictures, and my friend's two-year-old loves reading the story and talking about all the details in the illustrations. The story is a sweet rhyme about a family preparing and sharing a meal, while counting to ten not once but twice. I also like that the book features a black family - not enough picture books show people of color. " said.

" Not only are we discussing family, but Thanksgiving is approaching so I decided to read A Feast for Ten to my children yesterday. I was a able to make a self to text connection because my family also eat the foods that were mentioned in the story. The children also named foods that they eat, some mentioned in the story, some not. So, the children were also able to make a text to self connection. While reading the story we counted the items to ensure they matched the number shown on the page. " said.

" What a great read-aloud for preschool storytime! As a family shops for ingredients for dinner, they count from one to ten - and as they cook, they count again. Children will love counting the number of items on each page, and the illustrations feature bold colors that will keep their attention. This is one that could fit into a lot of storytime themes - cooking, family, and counting are just a few that would apply. " said.

" This would be a great asset to my classroom. It teaches counting from 1 through 10 with an African American family. I like that this book because of it's culturally responsive attributes. I appreciate that it portrays this family in a positive light. It's very relatable. It teaches 1 through 10, two times. First there's the grocery list in the supermarket, then there's the food preparation at home using the numbers. This a great way to introduce students to math concepts through counting. " said.

" Good for:-teaching counting 1-10-rhyming words/ end sounds -Good read around bookAs a teacher of mathematics, I could easily integrate this book into a variety of lesson plans,more specifically lesson plans revolving around number order and counting. I could do this book as a read aloud whole group, and then break my students off into centers where they must create their own unique math counting book. " said.

" This is a really wonderful concept book featuring an African-American family that prepares a meal starting with a trip to the grocery store. The book will introduce children to food, numbers, and a traditional family of brown faces. Perfect for read alouds, flannel board stories, and a story & craft. Some health conscious parents might object to the mother frying the chicken, but aside from that, there is nothing objectionable abou this book. " said.

"Feast for 10 is a great picture book for kids learning math for the first time. It also features an African American family – something we don’t see often in story books. I liked that the book counted from one to ten and then counted once more from one to ten. In my opinion, I think the story would have been a bit more challenging for young readers if the countdown was reverse on the second time through. The illustrations in this book are bold and grasp you as a reader. Great to use in classrooms for children learning how to count for the first time. " said.

"Feast For 10 is a warm, rhythmic story about a family taking a trip to the grocery store and preparing a meal to enjoy together. Each page introduces a number with an action: "One cart into the grocery store/ Two pumpkins for pie/ Three chickens to fry..." and so on, counting up to ten twice.

The book has much to commend it: on a cultural level, the story features a large family, which is cheerfully cooperative and hardworking without being annoyingly sweet. The children play an important role in the food preparation, and the ritual of sharing a meal together helps underscore their familial unity.

On an aesthetic level, this well-written book is illustrated with high-quality collage art, and it easily incorporates the counting exercise without detracting from the story. Because of its rhythm and rhyme, it will be well received by a preschool and early elementary audience.
