   My 2-year old loves this book!
My daughter's math skills are pretty advanced, too. This book, however, gave us both - the math that her brain craves and the child-like fun of counting. The book contains illustrations that are just as eye-catching and entertaining as the children.
   Introduces the concept of bossiness
I really liked her two other books, bath time math and bath-time math, she said. This book is not for children that young. Overall the storyline was very well-drawn, with the rhyming part missing, but the overall picture was just too cute. As a child and adolescent mental health therapist, I did not care for the introduction of the term "bossy" which later leads to negative behaviors at home and school. What a difference a more positive word could make? Several other words can replace "bossy" that will help to create a solid foundation for a girl's self-esteem, she said. Bossiness stems from insecurity, so let's help our young girls feel happy and confident, Blair said. I've always felt that books by middle school boys should be gender neutral because boys like butterflies.
   Became 2 year old's FAVORITE!
My daughter has to read this book a zillion times for my grand daughter, who always requests it before bed. My daughter got so sick of reading this over and over and over that she took her child to the library in hopes of finding other butterfly books to make life more interesting, her mom said. It's still a major hit, even if the sequel doesn't come close to matching the original. She picked a good one with this book.
   Practice Count to Ten
But I must admit, this is one that I will read too often with grand daughters. I'm not a math teacher, but would be interested in practicing numbers. Pretty pictures.
   Great Book!
I've read all the books, but this was by far the best. It was the only present my 3 year old niece gave it to me. Her big sister, who is 8 and also reads it, also enjoys it. The way it brings math principles into a good story line is quite unique, and as a strong STEM supporter myself and scientist, I can't say how great it was to find this author. I will also want to thank the other reviewers and Amazon for the recommendations, as I found this purely via Amazon - the process worked perfectly. The book is very well written and the illustrations are lovely and very fun, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
   Cute artwork, basic concepts.
When I saw the book, I immediately ordered it based on that. It was a very cute little book, Raymond said. Really great work, said Gillian Turner, senior project manager at RAFT. I would consider Quist's book as an introduction to other books by this author, with more complex mathematical content. My grandchildren, ages 3 and 5, were delighted to find out what it was all about.
   I absolutely love this book
The second book is simply too good to keep coming back for more. Even though the book is written in math, it's a lot of fun. It's a colorful book, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys children's books. My niece, nephew and the children I work with all love and enjoy this book.
   I bought this book for my grandson. Perfect buy
There is no one I would change about this book. It's just that the offer is in a cardboard box. Only a few weeks ago, my grandson was only 2 years old, LOVES the book and already has math. Danica McKeller is helping my grandsons to learn math in a beautiful book that keeps his attention, Mary. She also writes that her two older grandsons will get extras of the book for their children one day. Beautifully illustrated by Frank Quattrone.
   I absolutely love Ten Magic Butterflies
I absolutely love them all, even though I'm not a huge butterfly fan. It's so beautiful and cute and it's a learning tool as well. The story is so amazing and well written, Michael Schweer said. I'm hooked.
   Great for teaching your young child math
The book takes math to the next level by teaching students how to count to ten by doing math problems in different ways. There are nine other things: cuckoo clocks, mechanical locks, one thing and nine other. The pictures are very vibrant, which will help keep your child's attention, he said.
