    Very Educational

    This is a good book for teachers or parents who are trying to teach children ages 2-5 how to count to ten. It is an educational book that teaches kids how to share and play with other children. The book that I received only had four colors, not including black and white, and the pictures were very simple and plain. Therefore, if you are trying to catch the attention of little ones, you will need to use your voice and enthusiasm to keep the young ones at the edge of their seats and engaged. Also, there are only 75 simple words in the whole book, so the kids may be able to recite it and read it back to you. Overall, it is a good book and I recommend it if you are wanting material to help your children learn.

    Another indispensable Seuss classic for toddlers

    This is another excellent book to read aloud with a toddler, it is currently my 2 year old's favorite. This one even has a bit of a plot as the one-up-man-ship of the apple-balancers escalates. Very good for teaching counting to ten.

    One-Ups-Creatureship Balancing Act to Help with Counting!

    This book is a tour de force for helping with reading and counting to ten, using a vocabulary of only 75 words! A lion, dog, and tiger find many interesting ways to balance ten apples vertically on their heads, building up from only one. Then the birds decide they would like the apples, and the fun really begins. The conclusion will leave your child giggling happily. Most simple books try to teach only counting or reading. I found it to be a great idea to combine the two. It makes the task both easier and more interesting for your child. By using only 75 words, there is much repetition to help your youngster identify words that she or he will reuse throughout life. Here is an example: 'One apple up on top! Two apples up on top!' The illustrations nicely cue the young person to the words and the numbers involved. With these words I have quoted, you see the lion with the requisite number of apples balanced on top of the head. The illustrations are also very active, and help draw interest to the story. Mr. Roy McKie's colorful, dynamic illustrations bring the story to life. Otherwise, how interesting can a counting book be? Most children will have no trouble memorizing this story. Then, they can 'read' along as you read aloud. Later, you can stop for certain words that they know how to identify, and they can read that word as part of the sentence you are reading aloud. You can also encourage them to count the number of apples aloud on each creature's head. You can extend the value of this book by adding some pages of your own that involve numbers beyond ten. Your child will enjoy helping your with the illustrations for those pages. With the simple text structure, you cannot help but match what Dr. Seuss would have written (writing here under his pen name of Theo. Le Sieg -- the reverse of his real last name). As an adult, I also encourage you to consider creating other books for your children to learn from. You could take this same structure, and introduce other nouns as well. Beyond that, you could also use this structure (with tiny amendments) to teach new verbs. By adding only a few dozen words, you can greatly expand your child's ability to enjoy stories! Keep it simple, and everything can be understood! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution
