Ten Little Rabbits by Virginia Grossman

Having Native American children I am always looking for books that avoid the stereotypes but are also relatable. I purchased this in 2002 when my youngest was 18 months old (hardcover version). He loved to look at it. He would look through it at least once a day. When he didn't have it his older brother would find any excuse to "read it to him".

The illustrations are vibrant and colorful without being gaudy. The book covers the numbers 1 through 10 by featuring rabbits dressed in Native American regalia and doing traditional Native activities. The book is both culturally sensitive and educational.
