Ivy and I both love the ‘Ten Little…’ books by Mike Brownlow and Simon Rickerty so we were super excited to discover this brand new addition. I believe there are now 7 titles in the series and this one is definitely in our top 3 (our absolute favourites are Ten Little Dinosaurs and Ten Little Superheroes!).
The story starts with ten shiny new robots who have just been switched on at the robot factory. They are very excited by their surroundings so they decide to explore – with catastrophic results! We slowly count the robots down from ten to one as they encounter lasers, crushers, cogs, drones and explosions.
Can the last remaining robot restore order to the factory and bring all of his robot friends safely back together? Of course he can!
Ivy loves the sense of danger in this one and the bright, colourful illustrations. As soon as we unwrapped the book she selected a favourite robot – the pink and green one who falls foul of a flying spring – and she loves the shiny silver cover too.
Personally, I love these books because in amongst all of the colour and chaos is a really clever way of teaching your child the numbers 1-10. They’re learning the sequence (and how to count backwards) without even realising, which gets a thumbs up from me!
