" This is the other half of the creative duo for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom writing his version of a counting book (the other author is responsible for Boom Chicka Rock)This book features the art of Lois Ehlert just like the original book. It's not as good as the original in my opinion but decent. Very similar in structure to Chicka Chicka Boom Boom but there's an apple tree this time. It counts higher than Boom Chicka Rock (1-20 and then 10s to 100).The illustrations are cut paper. " said.

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

My son loves this book right now! (age 3 1/2) Book goes up to 100. The numbers are climbing the apple tree, 1-20, then by tens 30, 40, etc, to 100. O is always asking "Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3, Will there be a place for me?" He ends up at the top of the tree with 10 to make 100. There are some bees in the book who cause the numbers to get out of their tree.

Not as great as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom but it has been growing on me the more that I am reading it with my son.

Story Time: Might turn it into a felt board story. Each felt piece might be a group of numbers. For example 1,2,3 together on one piece as they go up the tree together on the first page.

"In this colorful, rhyming children’s book the numbers 0-100 share many adventures while climbing an apple tree. They climb to the top and some eat apples along the way. Once numbers 0-99 are in the apple tree, number zero starts to cry because it is worried there won’t be room for it to join the party. Then a ton of bumblebees start attacking the tree and tell the letters to get out of their tree. The letters then fall out of the tree until there are no more left. Once all the letters are out of the tree, zero realizes its perfect place is joined with 10 so together they can make 100. Zero becomes the hero of the apple tree. This book is simple and colorful, plus it rhymes which is perfect for engaging young children and getting them interested in counting. This could very easily be incorporated into a classroom for a counting unit, and I could imagine lots of activities that could also be incorporated into this book." said.

"This is another book that has almost the same kind of format as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. The numbers are all trying to go up an apple tree. Will there be a place for Zero? You'll have to read it to find out.The illustrations are fun and colorful. This book was fun just like the one that proceeds it. The rhythm in the book is pretty evident so it makes it easy to read and the children follow along. I gave this book 3 stars only because it wasn't as exciting and catchy as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I enjoyed it, though.

This book is also a good resource to have for prek and kindergarten. It's catchy and it shows off the numbers in a vibrant way. PreK has to know their number up to 20 before entering kindergarten. This book goes up to 20 and then goes up by 10's to 100. Going up by 10's will help kindergarteners in reaching their goal of knowing how to count to 100 before 1st grade.

Grade: PreK-K, Lexile: AD470L (Adult Directed; meaning it should be read by the teacher. A 2nd grader could read this book independently) Guided Reading Level: H-J

"Summary: This time, it's the numbers turn to take an adventure. Numbers 1 through 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 99 race to the top of an apple tree. But will there be enough room for 0? A swarm of bees comes along and chases the numbers out of their tree. 0 hides. Once the bees are gone, 0 takes his place atop the tree with 10 -- making 100. The numbers are happy and scramble back to the top of the tree.

Uses: read-aloud in the primary grades; independent reading for early readers; possibly shared reading (on the chorus). Recommend to students who love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and students who may be having difficulty with their numbers. Use when introducing numbers.

Literary Devices: rhymes, repetition, hyperbole, personification, onomatopoeia

Social issues: being left out, finding your place

Other: colorful illustrations as always; silly rhymes; illustrations look similar to Molly Bang's (maybe connect the to or use as an example to show the students)

"Chicka Chicka 1-2-3

Summary: This book is similar to Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, except instead of letters they incorporate numbers. They use numbers and rhyming throughout the whole book. The illustrations in this book show digits climbing up an apple tree which represents the content on each page.

Response: This book has the same concept as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I liked that the author mentioned numbers one through twenty, then went from twenty to one hundred counting by tens. This is an interesting way to young children recognize numbers and learn them in a different way. I’m not sure if there is a song that correlates with this book or not but it’s definitely something I’m going to look up.

Classroom Connections: This is a great tool to help young students recognize different numbers. This book could be read before or after a math lesson. Students could pick different numbers from the book and create math problems out of them. They could even create math problems out of the numbers for their classmates to solve.

CCSS: The lexile measure, guided reading level, and grade equivalents are not listed for this book. I think that the measures for this book would be very similar to the measurements of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom which are a lexile level of 530L, a grade equivalent of 1.9, and a guided reading level around J. I also believe that Pre-K students through second graders would be interested in this book.
