Silly gibberish, the kids' number book equivalent of one of those movies where everyone starts dancing at the end. No, "dancing" makes it sounds fun and lighthearted. I'm talking disco pointing, doing the swim, Pulp Fiction hands, that kind of shit, and everyone has their "own" move and their "own" minute in the sun. Nonsensical, fascistically enforced catharsis.

Summary: a counting book with a lot of rhymes and repetition.

Personal: I loved how this book is a read along really got kids excited.

Extension: I would use this in the class as we learn our numbers than I would have each student hand numbers on the number tree.

100 and 1 numbers climb the apple tree in this bright, rollicking, joyous book for young children. As the numbers pile up and the bumblebees threaten, whats the number that saves the day? It rhymes with "hero". ( )

This book was fun for kids to learn how to count I enjoyed reading it. There were one hundred and one numbers that climbed the apple tree, and when the book is read to children they would enjoy learning to read count, play, and laugh to get a surprising answer. ( )

An early number book that introduces numbers beyond ten. Sometimes that can be hard to come by especially appropriate books for little little guys who already have 1-12 under their belt. ( )
