...Not only does it help kids understand counting, it also teaches them about simple subtraction, colors, and classifying.
...the wonderful aspect for children is the fact that by reading the story, they have learned mathematics.
Ten zany birds have a party in a tree, singing and dancing. Five have stripes, three have spots, and one has purple polka dots. They're all having fun, but one by one, they become distracted.
One is frightened by a loud plane. One gets hungry. One wants to race and another needs a bath. Only one stays to sing in the tree, but who will it be?
Ten Zany Birds is a fun, beautifully illustrated picture book. As parents and teachers read, children are introduced to counting and basic subtraction skills. Whenever a bird leaves, the number of striped, spotted, and polka-dotted birds changes, teaching the application of simple classification rules.
Whimsical and entertaining, this tale of ten silly, distractible little birds is an excellent choice for both prereader storybook time and early readers.
