This was a simple counting book that would be a fun for K-2nd. I liked the simple rhymes for the counting. It was also nice how they introduced base ten and counted by tens for children. This can sometimes be a hard concept to initially grasp for some young kids. This could be used by teachers as a lead for using manipulative like Cheerios to help counting by any sort of combinations and then as a treat getting to eat their math project.

The book starts off counting by 1s. Then at 10 starts to count by 10s all the way to 100. There are Cheerios grouped in tens along with a fruit with the same count.

The book counts from one to ten, with one number per page. Each page has the number, a picture of that number of Cheerios, a rhyming verse containing the number, and a picture of a different kind of fruit, also demonstrating the number. The rhymes are OK, but not quite natural. As we read each page, I like to count the number of Cheerios. In doing so it's hard to keep the rhyme going. Also, if we stop to notice (or count) the fruit, the rhyme tends to get lost. ( )

This book is simply a counting book that uses cheerios to go through all of the numbers. It counts one through twenty and then counts by tens to one hundred. This book is great for Kindergarteners learning to count. ( )

Food is a major part of every toddler's day, and food is the focus here: holding it, playing with it, eating it, and, also, counting it, so that numbers become a natural part of breakfast, and concepts are learned through crunchy physical facts. The Cheerios trade name may worry some parents, but even the child who prefers eating cornflakes will enjoy counting and grouping the small, firm grainy circles. Clear, colorful pictures with lots of white space show a big numeral and individual pieces of cereal on each page, first from 1 to 10, then in groups of 10, up to 100. In addition, the handsome colored margins include fruits and slices of fruit for each number. There is an occasional forced rhyme, but the words are simple and direct. In fact, the text is almost irrelevant; no adults need specific words to tell them how to count and interact ("You can count cereal. You're counting just fine. See seven. Here are eight"). As young preschoolers munch and play and tally, they will find a delicious world they recognize in a book. Category: For the Young. 1998, Scholastic, $10.95. Ages 2-4. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590683578, Paperback)

What could be more fun than playing with your food? If you're a toddler, not much. So this simple counting book based on the well-loved breakfast cereal has a lot going for it before even being opened, and once it is cracked open, it doesn't disappoint. Big, colorful numerals stand out boldly on a white background, framed by more bright colors. Familiar little toasty O's and luscious-looking pieces of fruit match the number specified on each page: three Cheerios, three strawberries, and a little blurb--"Count O's here/ Say one, two, three!"--all support learning the number 3. One through 10 all share this format; the simplified 11 to 19 appear on a veritable fruit salad of a page, and the climactic 20 claims its own page opposite: "Eat twenty O's when the counting is done!"

Make breakfast time count with this tasty little board book! For more flavorful (if less healthy) counting lessons, see some of Barbara Barbieri McGrath's other books: Hershey's Kisses: Counting Board Book and The M&M's Brand Chocolate Candies Counting Board Book.
