Ten Terrible Dinosaurs by Paul Stickland
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
This colourful book counts down from ten dinosaurs to just one dinosaur, emphasising the one-less-than relationship between numbers when counting backwards. Only the dinosaurs remaining in the group are shown at each stage. The numbers of dinosaurs are represented at the end of the book as an increasing staircase pattern, counting up
from one dinosaur to ten dinosaurs - this provides a lovely opportunity for children to practise both counting up to ten and counting down from ten.
