Ten, Nine, Eight by Molly Bang

Ten, Nine, Eight is a sweet bedtime book that centres around a father getting his toddler daughter ready for bed. The book also doubles as a counting book since it counts down from 10 to 1 the various things associated with the little girl’s bedtime routine, including the features of her cosy bedroom.


The overall feel generated by the soothing, simple text and muted illustrations is a warm and loving one. So by the time the countdown reaches ‘1’, we see that the ‘big’ little girl in the book is all ready for bed — and so will the reader be.
