Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Ants, grasshoppers, and other insects are a part of the count as they move on their way. Using a familiar song with a twist, children have the opportunity to identify different insects and count them. The text introduces counting and numerals from one to five. The pictures are simple collages of color photographs of insects. Some children may be confused by the concepts of a set and multiple sets used in the illustrations. For instance, the picture of the grasshoppers moving two by two shows four sets of them paired off and so there is a total of eight grasshoppers in the layout. In the case of the caterpillars moving four by four, the illustration shows two sets and each set has four caterpillars making a total of eight caterpillars. Adults may need to understand how the children are doing the counting in order to support one-to-one correspondence. The back of the book has some tips for teachers and adults as they interact with children as they read the book. This book is a part of the series, "Rookie Preschool: Rookie Learn About Nature."
