A little girl is on a visit to Aunt Lucy's cake shop with her mother. Aunt Lucy is a Master Baker and the mother and daughter are having a look at the yummy cakes and scrumptious sweets Aunt Lucy makes. Aunt Lucy is always glad to see them and she asks the little girl to go and pick up a freshly baked cake. Behind the glass display are ten cupcakes and she knows she has to eat them all. She has the Chocolate Chip one first, then the Lemon Lime one, Vanilla Cream, Cherry Cola, and the rest of them. She thinks the Cherry Cola tastes divine and the Orange Drizzle tastes supreme. The little girl feels sick by the time she finishes having the last cupcake and she knows she is suffering from cake overload. Aunt Lucy gives her a box to fill to take away and have at another time.

Ten Cupcakes by Irene Mathias is an adorable story that conveys the message that overeating can be bad, and it also teaches children to count from one to ten in a fun and entertaining way. Emma Stephen's illustrations make the book and story 'edible,' and children would love to have one of those cupcakes from Aunt Lucy's cake shop. It is a good storybook to help children learn counting, and parents and tutors can use it at home and in classrooms to make counting fun. I like the way the author effortlessly knits together eating cupcakes, the flavors, and counting.
