The countdown to bedtime is about to begin when a family of hamsters arrives at the front door. "All aboard," shouts the child's pet hamster, and it's off to the kitchen for a snack, to the bathroom for toothbrushing, to the bedroom for a story. And just as the child starts to read, more hamsters stream through the front door and the escapades accelerate as the countdown continues. Now in a sturdy board book format, this favorite bedtime book is ready for a younger audience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nana Nightime Must 10 minutes may slip by unnoticed to adults, however, 10 minutes is the perfect amount of time to have fun & frolic with the neighbourhood hampsters before realizing that 10 minutes can also be exhausting. Curl up with your special child before bedtime and enjoy the animated detail that allows your little one the choice of speed reading or stretching pre-bedtime reading to the max as you look for & giggle at each numbered hampsters antics as the countdown plays out. This is destined to be a generational classic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great book! A wonderful book for kids and parents. Each time we read it we find some new little detail in the pictures that we hadn't noticed before. The tie-in to the author's book "Good Night Gorilla" is a particular favourite. Our son loves to count the hamsters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 Minutes Till Bedtime A visual delight! Without many words, parents can read this story once and kids will be able to read it themselves again and again. New things will be noticed in the elaborate pictures each time the book is picked up, and learning to count to ten will come so easily kids won't even notice they've learned it. Highly recommended for the pictures alone.

"Tales about stalling bedtime abound but none more cleverly than Rathmann's humorous picture book. ... Children will pore over the comical details."
