Dave Mora creates fun rhymes that go along with numbers! It's fun because the reader learns counting numbers in English as well as Spanish.
Personal Response:This story is mostly in English, the only Spanish being the counting. This book offers simple text and I appreciate the repetition of the numbers and the corresponding illustrations so that children can easily understand and follow along with the progression of numbers. I also like the pronunciation guide at the end of the story.Curricular Connections:This story could be included in any counting/math story time.
Great book to teach Spanish numbers. The book goes back and forth between Spanish and English numbers so that they are easier to learn which numbers correspond to the other. The author also includes some rhyming which can add to the learning aspect of the numbers.
