I got a little confused and picked up this book by Keith Baker, because I thought it was one of the two books of his on the counting bibliography. It wasn't, but it should be! This book was delightful and included actual math concepts like addition and subtraction, along with rhythms. I really enjoyed this book and thought it was great fun.

Keith Baker’s Quack and Count is illustrated with a cut-paper collage of warm and cool colors and shows children how to count to seven in seven different combinations of ducks. The back cover displays the numbers one, two, three, four, five, six and seven.

Summary:
This is a book that explains to younger children how to count to seven. They do this by using the ducks.

My Reaction:
I enjoyed this book it is very cute for children and kept their attention.

Classroom:
1.This would be a good book to incorporate math and poetry.
2.This would be great to read during an Easter thematic unit. ( )

"Quack and Count" by Keith Baker is a great book for a teacher to use in lower Elementary. This book explores the ways that you can have a sum of 7 by using different addends. You could use this book as hook to teach how there are many combinations to get to a number. The book follows the different combinations by looking at ducklings and how they are organized when swimming and later flying. The book is beautifully illustrated. It is also fun and easy to read so it would be a great book to let students with a lower reading level read if students were taking time to read books in math. This book is a great way to teach addition without teaching. The students will be able to use their mind to conclude that 5+2=7. You will be able to teach in a backward design and this will hopefully keep the students engaged. You could also use manipulatives to follow the storyline and do a circulation to see if students are able to recreate the combinations of addends. ( )

This is an adorable counting book that practices addition skills, as well. I think this would be a great book for pre-k students who are beginning to learn number sense. ( )
