This is such a cute counting book. I love the illustrations and the nursery rhyme "one, two, buckle my shoe" it is one of my all time favorites. I also enjoy the visual number representations at the end. It is a short and sweet book!

This rhyme is very popular and easy to memorize so young children will get a kick out of it. The acrylic paintings make the colored illustrations really pop. I like that Baker has used crazy colors for different objects, like green for hens. It really makes each object stand out.This is a great way to introduce counting into the classroom. You can incorporate little pebbles or balls and imagine that they are chicks. Each student can begin to learn to count this way.

This was a favorite of mine when I was a little girl. It is a great book for memorizing how to count to ten. The rhyme/song is a classic. The pictures are very bold and colorful.

9, 10, a big fat hen! I think one of the better counting books. Easy for children to recognize numbers with things to count relating clearly to numbers on every page. Ask, "what number?" and if children do not recognize number, ask them to use the book as a resource to find out by counting. A lesson plan could stem from this using cut out eggs to work on addition and subtraction.
