For summer reading I purchased Laurie Keller's book collection for my daughters. I had never read this book but if you like her other books, it is wonderful! It has lots of hidden pictures and side comments from characters which are fun to read with children. We were also excited to see Mr. Bing and Arnie in there from her book Arnie the doughnut. I enjoy her illustrations and the story is silly which as an adult reading many children's books a day is fun! Children will learn their numbers from reading the book and are encouraged to count items on each page.
I bought this book with the intention of donating it to my brother's elementary school. When we received it in the mail, it immediately caught his attention!
This is a witty book that flies through numbers quickly and the illustrations catch a young readers' attention easily. The best audience for this book would be Pre-K 4 through 1st grade! Children at these ages will be capable of grasping the idea of the book and 1st graders will read through it in stride. For adults who read this book with a child, wit is submerged in the number sentences that remarkably reach the young audience as well.
I definitely encourage people to by this book! The bargain price on Amazon is stupendous for it being a hardcover book! Children will enjoy the quick read and colorful illustrations while adults will enjoy the clever manipulation of words and numbers!
I got this for my 5 year old friend. She was learning counting and numbers but kept getting stuck on 15! I love Laurie Keller books; they are as fun for me as they are for Chanel. We started with the smile book and love Do unto Otters as well. This is a perfect book for kids learning to count. it got us up to 20 with no problem. LOVE IT!
Why just settle for numbers as things? How about making your own "threes" out of pieces of a nice yummy yellow or red or green bell pepper? Can you make a "six" out of a bread stick and cook it up? What about a couple of "elevens" out of cheese sticks or cheese cracker sticks? If kids could eat up their times tables, maybe it would be more fun to do multiplication! Never give up on the possibilities of "cooking up reading".
Here she goes again, wonderful images and writing that kids love. Makes counting fun. I thought there could be no more "counting books" that would be any different than all the hundreds of others....I was very much mistaken. Laurie, again, has her own unique way of expressing things and her sense of humor and wit always comes through. You can always depend upon her books to entertain and educate everyone from little kids to grandmas like me. Loved the book.
Great book! Different everytime we read it. Little counting activities on each page. My kids love the captions and it is a great way to keep the book fresh! Check it out at the library first and see just how much your kids will love this book and not even realize that they are learning to count up to 21. Enjoy and happy reading!
