My daughter was only 2 months old when we began reading this book to her. It is clearly her favorite book...we just announce the title and she settles down. While reading it to her, she looks like she is "studying" the book. Great colors, great rhythm...it's good enough to keep a four month old's interest! A good storyline as well. I highly recommend this for any child's library. OH and "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" is a close second.

My son loves this book and often wishes to review it and get to the top of that apple tree every time.

The nice thing about this book---aside from the sheer fun of it---is the information sticks. The numbers stick, the rhyme sticks---everything. I made the mistake of talking about the book in front of my niece and misnamed the tree the numbers climb. I was immediately corrected. Great book for teaching numbers.

Have you ever felt left out when others are doing something? That's just the way the number zero feels in this book Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3. All the other numbers are racing to the top of the apple tree, and there is zero asking, 'Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 .... Will there be a place for me?' While all the other numbers gather in the tree, some angry bumblebees arrive shouting, ¿Get Out Of Our Tree!' scaring all the numbers that tumble to the ground. And there is zero who looks up into the apple tree and there sat number ten at the top of the tree, so zero leaps up and joins ten to become 100 finally finding a place to belong. Great book for learning numbers, reading by your self or using at school for 100th day. Bill Martin one of the authors of this book, grew up in Kansas in a home that didn't have children's books. For many years he kept a secret from his teachers, he couldn't read. It wasn't until he was in college that he read his first book. He went on to earn a master's degree and doctoral degree in early childhood education to work as a teacher and principal. Bill Martin has written more than 300 children's books since 1945 and he currently lives in Texas. Other books you will enjoy reading by this author are: Chicka Chicka A,B,C and Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? Jr. Martin, Bill. Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2004.

WAY TOO PRICY!

I really enjoyed the book, "Chicka Chicka 1-2-3". The book is about the number 0-100 climbing a tree together. All the numbers have a place except zero. When a bee comes by all of the numbers fall out of the tree. This book is a great tool when working with students on number recognition. The book will help students count from 0-100.

This book is all about numbers and counting. Throughout the story numbers are climbing up an apple tree and they eventually all fall out. Zero, the number that originally didn't have a space in the number tree became the hero because he could join with the number ten to create the number one hundred. This book is also full of rhyming words so it would be great for both counting and rhyming words.

This book is perfect for beginning readers. It is also great for read aloud. It's a fun, colorful counting book that could be a go-to for a fun activity. It can easily be created into something hands-on for students where you can create your own tree and numbers and they can re-enact the story. 4 stars.

I love chicka chicka 1,2,3. This book is great to use for children who are having trouble with their numbers. You can show children what number sequences are by using this book! I would recommend this book to use in a classroom. I gave this book five stars because the illustrations are great and the wording is written in a fun way. Children will actually learn from this book because they can do fun activities with it. I wish that I had had this book when I was growing up.

The story doesn't work as well as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, but since Ali (at 24 months) is a fan of that book and a lover of numbers, she also likes this one. It's helping her to recognize numbers above 10 (although it doesn't teach number concepts.)

Reaction: The vibrantly illustrated book match the lively written text, making this the perfect read aloud. The rhythm is so strong it becomes a sort of chant, making it a perfect and fun read aloud for children.
clong on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is not nearly as effective as the original. Some of the rhymes are ridiculously strained, and the story just doesn't make sense on any level. Why do we jump to increments of 10 when we get to 20? Why is 70 the only number with personality? Why does 10 defy the onslaught of bumblebees? Why does forming the number 100 resolve the conflict? What kind of a whiny role model does our hero 0 provide when all is said and done?None of which is to deny that my four year old likes it.

This book about the number climbing the tree and then they fall off and try to get back up the tree. This book is great for early readers, because they are about to predict what might happen next, and then compare how this book is chicka, chicka, boom, boom.
OliviaBarrett11 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I rated this book with 5 stars because I enjoyed it! The way that you can include the classroom in with the teacher reading is great! A teacher could include many fun new ways to use this book when teaching with it. Children love to count aloud and use repetition tools. Also you could use it for the pictures it has. These were great sayings throughout the book.
SarahCoil on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I really enjoyed this book. This book would be great for the beginning of the year when teaching students to count. I would have the students help me with the counting throughout the story. I will have students cut out leaves and write numbers on them. I would ask them to glue the leaves in order onto the tree.
