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. ( )

Along with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, these books are read constantly to our three boys. Fun to read aloud to them and great books for those learning to read. ( )

Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 by Bill Martin Jr. is a fun counting book for young children! This book has a lot of rhymes and repetition so it allows for the child to "read along". The concept that is taught in this book is counting. Each number climbs to the top of the apple tree. The phrase "Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 will there be a place for me?" is one that is repeated throughout the book. The book counts to 20 and then starts counting by 10s all the way to 100.

This would be a great book to use in a Pre-K-1st grade classroom to teach about numbers. This fun book will help students practice their counting skills. An author study for Bill Martin Jr. could also be done with these classes. He has written similar books such as: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Chicka Chicka A, B, C. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book to a group of first graders. They told me it helped them get better at counting to 100! ( )

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.

Numbers from one to one hundred climb to the top of an apple tree in this rhyming chant.
