Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One fine morning, a rooster sets off to see the world. Soon he's joined by two cats, then three frogs, then four turtles, then five fish. But one group by one, his new friends decide to head home, leaving the rooster alone again — and ready to return to his own comfortable home as well. Bold, colorful collage illustrations, a beguiling story, and a simple introduction to number sets, addition, and subtraction combine to make andlt;Iandgt;Rooster's Off to See the Worldandlt;/Iandgt; a delight for Eric Carle's many young fans.

Synopsis:

"Striking illustrations in glowing colors enhance a simple tale about a rooster who impulsively sets out on a journey and is joined in turn by two cats, three frogs, four turtles, and five fish. . . . Counting boxes in the upper corners of the pages recording the presence of each set of animals as they join the trek and their absence as they leave it, make this a graphic lesson in addition and subtraction as well as a pleasing picture book."--"Booklist." Full color. Pub; 6/99.

Synopsis:

This boldly colored cumulative tale tells the story of a traveling rooster who is joined by two cats, three frogs, four turtles, and five fish.
