I was very excited when we got this book through the post, so when my son 3 got back from playgroup i eagerly sat him down alongside my 2 year old to read it.
The book is very bright and colourful so instantly appealed to the children, and was eductional teaching them to count so appealed to me!
Each page had a number from 10- 1 and the same number of flies on it then you have a clear plastic page with one of those flies on it that you turn to put that one fly on the other page with a spider or some other dangerous thing to flies! you then turn the page and that leaves 9! so the book takes on the concept of 10 fat sausages sizzling in a pan.
This of course amused the kids, and after a few weeks were counting down 10-1, they loved the fact they were involved by turning the pages although this was a bit tricky for them as the pages kept sticking. Also the clear page was always on the wrong side to start with so my son gave up and wanted to read it back to front! The book is still read a lot although not an overall favourite, it was a fun way to teach them counting back wards! () out of 5
