"I'll race you to the top
of the apple tree."

One hundred and one numbers climb the apple tree in this bright, rollicking, joyous book for young children. As the numerals pile up and bumblebees threaten, what's the number that saves the day? (Hint: It rhymes with "hero.") Read and count and play and laugh to learn the surprising answer.

Review:

"Martin and Sampson (co-authors of I Pledge Allegiance) and Ehlert present an exuberant follow-up to Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (which Martin wrote with John Archambault, and Ehlert illustrated in 1989). Here numbers take over an apple tree, rather than letters tumbling from coconut tree branches. Launching the appealingly absurd antics is a challenge framed in the familiar rhythm: '1 told 2/ and 2 told 3,/ "I'll race you to the top/ of the apple tree."' As the subsequent numbers climb one by one with equal enthusiasm (after 20, the counting goes up by 10s), a worried zero (as indicated by a stray bead of perspiration) chants a refrain, 'Chicka Chicka/ 1, 2, 3.../ Will there be a/ place for me?' The climbing comes to a halt when bumblebees arrive, ordering the numbers to vacate, which they do in reverse order ('90, 80,/ 70 fall,/ hit the ground/ in a free-for-all'). A fun twist involves a missing number and zero, who finally realizes where he belongs and leaps atop the leaves, a move that scares off the bees and clears the way for the other numbers to return. Featuring electric colors and an amalgam of basic shapes, Ehlert creates cut-paper compositions as wry and buoyant as the rhyming text. Several embellishments offer additional whimsy (5 wears a top hat, 70 sports long hair); endpapers and jacket flaps brim with brightly-hued numbers. Cleverly calculated verse and visuals add up to numerical mayhem that will entertain as well as reinforce counting skills and digit identification. Ages 3-7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Adults will probably need to explain the math; the bright endpapers that count by ones to 100 will help. Despite the tricky concepts...the chanting rhyme and eye-popping images have a contagious energy youngsters will find irresistible." Booklist

Review:

"This story is a perfect selection for 100th day or Zero the Hero celebrations. A deliciously sweet selection, and a nifty counting book to boot." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

This spectacular follow-up to the bestselling "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" is "the" book for any child learning to count, with 101 numbers climbing an apple tree in this bright, rollicking book for youngsters. Full color.

This book is a fun addition to the "Chicka chick" series. It deals with counting from 1 to 100 fun and with an air of mystery. Which number is the "hero?" Read the book and find out!

My son loves this book (along with his parents that search for different types of books that are fun for us to read too)! It has a catchy rhythm and exposure to counting in a fun fashion makes this a favorite book over and over again. The graphics also seem to grab his attention. I highly recommend buying this.
