This fun and creative book could mainly be used in math for learning numbers and counting or rhyming. I also used it for a puppet show, having each number be a puppet on the coconut tree.

Martin has a wonderful writing style. Martin has multiple rhymes and repetition that are used during the book. The book has a very catchy and calming tone as you read. Each page is full of vibrant colors, the numbers are large for children to recognize. Martin does a great job of counting and telling a story line of all of the numbers trying to climb a tree. This book could be helpful for teaching children the correct number order for counting up and backwards to 1. In my opinion, the last page which shows all the numbers from 0-100 is very helpful and encouraging for students who are learning how to count. ( )

This book is great book for counting and learning numbers. It has numbers climbing up tree in a fun rhythm. This book has a fantastic way of introducing numbers in a fun way. The pictures really pop and the text is fun with rhythm.

I love the rhyming and sound play in this book. The kids love it and so do adults. It is just like "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom ABC," which is familiar to everyone. ( )

Will there be a place for me? Says 1,2 and 3. The numbers want to clim to the top of the apple tree. Will there be enough room for all of the numbers? The bees scare them all out! Kids will love interacting with each number in this sing songy favorite. ( )

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.
