Review: Ten Rosy Roses

User Review  - Jessica Benson - Goodreads

This is a sing-song kind of book that focuses on counting from 10 to 1. Children would enjoy echoing or singing along with the reader. It is also a good book to have in the classroom because of the multicultural aspect. Read full review
