I loved this book. My students were excited to read this book because it is similar to chicka chicka boom boom, the alphabet book. They were counting as I read and then they got very loud for the chicka chicka boom boom part. I would use this book to show the students how you can have fun and learn. ( )

This book goes over the numbers in an upbeat, familiar rhyme. The big idea of this book would be the counting.

I had mixed feelings about this book. I liked this book because it covers the numbers in a fun, familiar, upbeat tone. My only complaint is that I mistook this book for Chicka, Chicka Boom, Boom when I picked it off the shelf. ( )

The kid loves it; her parents aren't fans. Several instances of dubious rhyme (e.g. "twenty" with "plenty") and, if it can be said to have a plot, there is a plot hole. (The numbers want to climb the apple tree, but are chased away by bees, until...the bees give up?) ( )

This story would be good to use in younger grade levels in an elementary school setting such as pre-schoolers and kindergarteners. With this story, you could teach your students the order of numbers and can advance into maybe a first or second grade level and begin teaching them to do basic math problems such as adding and subtracting the numbers.

1 told 2

and 2 told 3,

"I'll race you to the top

of the apple tree."

One hundred and one numbers climb the apple tree in this bright, rollicking, joyous book for young children. As the numerals pile up and bumblebees threaten, what's the number that saves the day? (Hint: It rhymes with "hero.") Read and count and play and laugh to learn the surprising answer.
