Ten mice demonstrate the combinations of numbers that can add up to 10 in this cozy picture book from the team behind The House of 12 Bunnies. After they awaken, “9 mice tidy,” while “1 mouse somersaults. 9+1=10” (Rossell shows a black-and-white spotted mouse gleefully diving off the group’s bunk-bed tower onto pillows scattered on the floor). This mix of helpful behavior and silly fun continues in the following pages, which have eight mice cooking while two juggle berries, seven washing dishes while three twirl plates on needles, and so on. It’s a clear and focused exploration of the concept, one that doesn’t lack for fun thanks to the mice’s antics. Ages 3–6. (Jan.)
