One fine morning, a rooster decided he wanted to travel. In this mini-book edition, using strikingly designed, colorful collage illustrations and a beguiling simple text, Eric Carle takes his young readers on a trip with the rooster and his companions. As he travels, the rooster is joined by two cats, three frogs, four turtles, and five fish, offering the child a graphic introduction to the meaning of numbers, number sets, and addition within the context of an entertaining story. When night falls, the rooster s friends find he has made no provisions for their food or shelter and, disappointed, they abandon the expedition once again in sets of five, four, three, and two, but this time in a declining series. Finally the rooster, too, decides that he has seen enough of the world and that he is, in fact, a little bit homesick. Eric Carle believes in letting children make learning discoveries at their own pace. This book can be read and enjoyed for its story and its beautiful illustrations alone; however, the child who is ready to begin to think mathematically will find additional pleasures in the opportunities presented in the text, the pictures and the diagrams for learning basic arithmetic concepts."

Reviews

An octet of favorite picture books now appears as board book editions. Wanderlust sends a rooster to the road, and loneliness leads him to take on traveling companions in the adventure-cum-counting book Rooster's Off to See the World by Eric Carle. The type may be small, to fit the format, but symbols in the corner of each spread help readers keep track of the travelers' growing number. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
