Rooster's Off to See the World (Classic Board Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rooster's Off to See the World is attractively packaged with six rubber stamps of artwork from the book, a stamp pad, and a blank booklet for children to create their own story with artwork, use for math exercises, create decorations on letters and gifts, and more.

Review:

"Carle's collages are eye-catching. The little images in the upper page corners will assist kids with their counting. It is wonderful to set out on an adventure, but there is nothing so sweet as one's home." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

"One fine morning, a rooster decided he wanted to travel." In 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.

Synopsis:

Rooster sets off to see the world and is joined by some of his friends. As evening approaches, each animal returns home one by one, leaving Rooster with his adventures. This story introduces number sets and counting to the very young. Full-color illustrations.
