Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
First it was M&Ms, now we have Sun Maid raisins, Goldfish cookies and Cheerios cereal used with books to help kids count. The learning is reinforced by the little snack. Cheerios are a big favorite with kids and the counting works quite well in this sturdy board book. Added attractions are the pieces of fruit also in the same amount as the Cheerios, so parents can extend the learning process. There are brightly colored pages for the number one to ten while eleven through nineteen are mentioned on a single page, but twenty gets one of its own. Parents better stock up on cereal if this book becomes a favorite. 1999, Scholastic, Ages 2 to 4, $6.99. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot—Children's Literature
Children's Literature - Dr. Beverly Kobrin
Extra kudos are due to Barbara McGrath for her excellent counting book. It all begins with zero, the decimal system's sine qua non. From "nothing" on, children call tally familiar foods in this colorful book. Counting books can be more than simply clusters of things for toddlers to tally. They can be aesthetic/intellectual experiences for readers of all ages. Use counting books to inspire reports, art projects, or lessons for cross-grade tutoring; display them as fine art; and most importantly, help youngsters discover that there is always something to learn from good nonfiction.
Children's Literature - Tina Hudak
This takes a food common to most households with children and transforms it into a concrete learning experience. Focus on one to twenty is included in the first twelve pages; following this, seventeen pages group numbers by tens from twenty to one hundred. Concise text presents simple math concepts, as in "Sixty is six groups with ten in each bunch." The familiar cereal box design greets the reader on the cover. Each number is repeated in several forms on the page: a numerical form, the word in a large, black font, and of course, the appropriate number of Cheerios. The white background of each page along with a simple color border creates an uncluttered visual display for easy recognition. Using this book with the actual object is a great tool. Young children can touch and manipulate the Cheerios, while older ones can understand them symbolically. This paperback is an affordable addition for collections, especially those at home and in pre-schools.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A straightforward teaching tool for learning counting skills. The Cheerios are arranged in organized patterns from 1 to 10, and then from 10 to 100 by increments of 10. Each page has a corresponding number of fruit pieces (banana slices, strawberries, blueberries, etc.) arranged around the borders. Unfortunately, the numbers from 11 to 19 are listed on one page without any pictorial representation. The double-page spreads have an attractive, uncluttered look with white space used effectively. The numbers and illustrations are large enough to be seen by a group. The text is simple with an occasional rhyme, "You can count cereal./What fun it will be!/ See one./Here are two./Now there are three." More clever and unique books about this concept exist, but cereal is an easy-to-access material, and this title could be a useful starting place for children doing their own counting.-Adele Greenlee, Bethel College, St. Paul, MN
