This silly story about 12 mice avoiding a cat teaches numbers and counting in a fun way. It could also be used as an introduction to telling time.

The torn-paper collage illustrations by the artist match the author¿s creativity in the story. This book will be well-read in many households as the ¿boom chicka rock, chicka rock, chicka boom¿ is endlessly catchy. Numbering the mice that appear dancing from page to page also helps in teaching how numbers relate to time.

A few weeks ago, my little boy checked out Chicka Chicka Boom Boom from the library. He loved the rhythm of the book. So I did a little research and found Boom Chicka Rock. Boom Chicka Rock used numbers like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom uses letters (that will be another review), and is every bit as silly and fun.  The illustrations are bright and intense, although a bit too rough for my taste. That doesn't mean they won't appeal to a three-year-old, because he often surprises me.

"Boom Chicka Rock" by John Archambault is based on twelve little mice who dance around the table looking for food. Each mouse in the story represents a number on the clock. Number 1 gets out of his cuckoo clock spot and he finds that there is a birthday cake on the buffet table. All twelve mice wait for Max the cat to take his nap so they can all get out dance around and feast on the cake. This story is a rhyming book to keep the children more into it. Overall this book is very well written and illustrated and I recommend it.
