Description
In this charming fable of a hardworking father of 10, every day is filled with counting. There are always 10 little T-shirts, 10 cups on the table, 10 bowls of spaghetti, 10 baths in the tub, 10 good-night kisses, until finally the fatigued father needs 1 big rest! Leaving his brood with Grandma, he sets off on a vacation from counting. But after just 1 peaceful day, and 1 quiet night, it seems that something is missing...make that something times 10!In her captivating American debut, Benedicte Guettier offers young readers and listeners tenfold opportunities for spotting and counting the particulars in each delightful scene. Ms. Guettier counts her own beloved "papa" as the inspiration for this witty tribute to the often overwhelming days and nights of modern parenthood.
