Overview


Written by noted early learning specialist Bill Gillham, How Many Sharks in the Bath? reflects the very latest in educational research and takes a fresh approach to teaching numbers from zero to ten. Packed with fun activities and clear, lively and colorful illustrations, this book is the perfect way to help children truly understand quantities rather than just reciting numbers in order and to recognize the spelling of each number. The books includes the number zero, an important and often ignored element in early numeracy and helps to familiarize children with taking numbers out of order and associating the word and numeral to the quantities on the page. Youngsters get to count how many penguins there are in the shower, how many ostriches are in a bed, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Chicks are hatching in the kitchen. Pigs are digging in the sandbox. And gorillas are eating at a picnic. These are just some of the wacky animal antics youngsters will discover in this entertaining counting book. A penguin asks, "How many penguins working on hair?" An elephant asks, "How many elephants on the slide?" A shark asks, "How many sharks in the bath?" This continues for eleven fun, full-spread scenes. When the children finishes counting, they are encouraged to find the written answer (the number and number word) on the number bar running down the right side of each action-packed scene. Every page is filled with bright, crisp illustrations and colorful patterns that allow animal characters to pop off the page. Thick, solid-colored borders down the left and right side of each scene separate question and answer bars from the rest of the page. With a brief explanation, even the youngest pre-readers will understand the left to right progression of the activities in this well-crafted counting book. 2005, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-This colorful title gives children the opportunity to practice numbers 0 through 10. Each spread features two smiling youngsters interacting with creatures that are engaged in whimsical tasks, such as swinging from light fixtures, zooming down a slide, and getting their hair done at a salon. The book begins by instructing adults to read the questions posed by the animals that appear on the left margin (e.g., "How many lizards running round the table?"), help youngsters count them, and point to the corresponding numbers-both Arabic and written-that are presented on the right margin. With this effective layout, listeners always know where to look for the numbers. The scenes take place over the course of a day, beginning with breakfast and ending with bedtime. The brightly colored backgrounds and boldly drawn cartoons have lots of child appeal. There are so many details packed into each spread that readers can make up questions about other items to look for and tally up. It is refreshing to have a counting book that includes zero, which is often overlooked. A good purchase for concept-book shelves.-Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
