In the board book “Ten Black Dots,” ten black dots are used to make a variety of things. For example, two dots are used to make up the eyes of a fox and three can make up the features of a snowman’s face.

Max: “I liked counting the dots on each page. It was cool how they used them to make things. My favorite was when they used the dots to make train wheels. I also liked the pennies in the piggy bank page.”

Parent’s comments:

Apparently, “Ten Black Dots” is an updated version of a book with an original copyright date of 1968. I had not heard of this book until now and my son and I truly enjoyed it. The book is educational and encourages creative thinking. We highly recommend it to any young child.
