    Prep for this summer's Reading Buddies A silly counting book. It rhymes and most of the meter is easily read.

    A farmer is trying to drive his truck down the road but turkeys are always in his way. This fun rhyming story is a twist on 10 little monkeys, and with a surprise ending. Great illustrations.

    A bunch of turkeys are practicing their circus in the middle of the road, much to the chagrin of the farmer trying to drive on the road. I'm always game for more turkey books!

    10 Turkeys in the Road is a book about 10 turkeys that are circus performers practicing their show in the middle of the road. One day, they were blocking the road when a farmer pulled in his truck. He beeped his horn and one turkey flew away. That left nine turkeys, so the farmer flashed his lights, and another turkey flew away. With eight turkeys left, the farmer started to inch forward and another turkey flew away. The book keeps this same pattern, until one turkey is left, he jumps in the 10 Turkeys in the Road is a book about 10 turkeys that are circus performers practicing their show in the middle of the road.

That left nine turkeys, so the farmer flashed his lights, and another turkey flew away. With eight turkeys left, the farmer started to inch forward and another turkey flew away. The book keeps this same pattern, until one turkey is left, he jumps in the farmers in truck, his nine turkey friends jump in, and they drive off leaving the farmer behind. A car pulls up full with pigs and asks the farmer if he needs a ride to the circus, so he jumps in. The book ends with a nice illustration of the 10 turkeys at the circus doing their tricks and the farmers truck is in their act. My favorite part of this story was when the one turkey stole the farmers truck and yelled, "Come see the show!" This part just made me laugh and I appreciate the humor. I would have this book in my classroom library for first through third graders. I think they would appreciate this story because of the humor and most children love the circus. I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book. I like how the illustrator used the whole page and made their illustrations really big so you could see all the details in the illustrations. I also liked how the illustrations really told the story. I feel like a student that still has trouble reading could read this text because when they aren't sure of a word or words, they can look at the illustration and get a feel of what is happening in the story and still understand what is going on. I also like how you could incorporate math in with this book, because on each page, you have to subtract one turkey from however many is left. This would be a good exercise to use to work with subtraction and also a fun and interesting way. I think the students would be more involved this way when there is a story behind the math. I really enjoyed this story about the turkeys and the circus.

    10 Turkeys In The Road by Brenda Reeves Sturgis and Illustrated by David Slonim is a fantastic Thanksgiving book that kids love. The counting book begins with a farmer unable to get by because there are turkeys in the road. The delightful illustrations continue with each number until they finally steal his truck and he ends up at the turkey circus. My students loved this book and I was able to put it to a familiar tune and sing the entire thing.

I recommend this book to kids 4-8 and it's a must have addition to holiday picture book libraries.

    This book was good for both kids to learn something about numbers. With Cooper we used the number chart and each time a turkey flew away we asked how many turkeys were left after we took one away. He was able to see visually how the amount changes when one is taken away. I really like how the story had the number included somewhere in the illustration. We had Alyssa look for the numbers to start her identifying numbers.

    This picture book is about 10 turkeys messing with a poor farmer in the middle of the road. I greatly enjoyed how silly this book is and how much it made me laugh. My favorite part of the story is that turkeys are circus performers! This story counts backwards from 10 to one and would be a great resource in the classroom for helping students learn how to count backwards or subtracting 1. I would recommend this story to children in kindergarten through second grade.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. My 4-year-old liked this silly rhyming and countdown book about turkeys in the road who are driving a farmer crazy! The illustrations are fun. "Ten turkeys blocked the road one hot and hazy day. A pickup screeched. A farmer beeped. One turkey flew away." When one turkey is left, he calls for his friends and they all come back and take the farmer's truck, leaving the farmer all alone. A car filled with pigs pulls up and asks the farmer if he needs a ride.

    This is a counting book (from 10-1) that tells the story about a farmer who is driving down the road and keeps coming across a group of circus turkeys. He gets more frustrated with their funny antics and slowly scares one turkey away at the end of each page. It's told in a super fun rhyme and includes adorable illustrations. My daughter likes to point out the number in each picture. This book always brings out quite a few giggles.

    This colorful read-aloud counts down 10-1 with spunky mischeivous turkeys. Fun for learning to count, also fun for being silly! The turkeys are clearly in the way, adorned in costume, playing musical instruments, performing circus-like acts, and causing general commotion! Will the driver EVER get to where he is going?

    Cute counting book with funny illustrations. This is a story of some wild turkeys headed to the turkey circus. They manage to make life very difficult for the farmer on their way. I personally love reading books with rhymes. Would be fun to read during the fall.

    Counting down turkeys from 10, the birds in the road give the farmer an issue (and then steal his truck). Children will be in giggles over the ending of this one. Not really a Thankgiving book but would play nicely in a bird or turkey storytime.

    This is a great book to work with students are counting down from 10 to 1. Students will have to process which number comes before 9 instead of which number comes after.

    my son and I loved the humor and he loved counting down the turkeys.it reminded me a lot of 10 little monkeys jumping on a bed. Great for kids learning math.

    Cute rhyming story with fun, bright illustrations. It's very entertaining to watch the poor farmer gets more and more frustrated with the turkeys and their antics that end up clogging up the road.

    Oh those turkeys! First it stars with 10 and then readers countdown as a different turkey goes off the page. What about the farmer and where are the turkeys going?
