My Very First Book of Numbers / Mi primer libro de números: Bilingual Edition Reviews

    My Very First Book of Numbers is part of a series of split-page matching concept board books by Eric Carle. I highly recommend saving money and buying them as a set. The counting book is probably the least popular book of the four that comes in the set of four (the others are colors, words, and shapes). My son Luke is obsessed with the shapes book, but he doesn't love this one. And there's a reason: this book is much harder.While the upper half of the split pages progress in order from one to ten, the bottom pages are scrambled. The idea of the book is that a child must find the matching page. For the number one, the top half shows one black square and the numeral "1." You must flip through the book to find one of something. Soon (it's the second page, actually), you come across a picture of one pineapple. The left-facing half-page says one pineapple with the sight word bolded (and in the bilingual edition copy I borrowed from the library it also says, una piña).I was amused by the number of parent reviewers with (I assume) neurotypical children on Goodreads who were put off by all the flipping of pages and the fact that the progression of illustrated food items is out of order. For me, this is what makes the book so powerful. Kids with autism do very well with order and it is precisely the lack of order and the need to sort through it all that is so tricky.What fewer reviewers picked up on that I struggle with is that the skill that is being developed with this book is also about subitizing. Subitizing is the ability to quickly and accurately ascertain the number of items in a set. Think about rolling a dice and calling out the number, or seeing three apples on the counter—you don't need to actually count them to know there are three. The skill of subitizing relies on visual spatial working memory, and it seems that this can be a deficit area of cognition for individuals with ASD.Basically, it's no wonder that Luke isn't thrilled with this book even though he loves the format and the others in its series. It's really hard for him. I recommend buying the whole set of 4 partly because this one is so hard. If it were not for his fondness for the others in the series, I'm not sure he'd try. The love for the format is critical.---I review books for children from the perspective of a parent of kids with autism. The review above is part of a longer post of 15 great counting books: http://www.lineupthebooks.com/countin...

    Originality: 4Illustrations: 3 Story: 0BooBoo: 3 I think this is our least loved Eric Carle book. This is not a storybook. This book is supposed to teach children about numbers. But the method used in this book is not practical. The book is divided into 2 sections: a top half and a bottom half. The top half consists of pages that have printed numbers from 1 to 10 with a number of corresponding black squares on them. The bottom half has illustrations representing the numbers 1 to 10. You are to take a top page and match it up with the bottom illustration that corresponds with it. The problem with this is that you have to flip back and forth to find the illustration that corresponds with the number. I think this is distracting. Also, it doesn't allow for an illustration of a progression from 1 to 10. It doesn't allow the child to see the number of items illustrated getting logically larger and larger because all the child sees is you see is flipping. I think the gimmick of this book has failed this book. And since there is no story there isn't a lot to redeem this book. We've seen almost all of these illustrations before in better Eric Carle books.

    Carle, Eric. (1974). My Very First Book of Numbers. New York, NY: Philomel Books.Annotation: For babies to preschoolers. Eric Carle uses blocks and colorful fruit to teach young children how to correspond numbers with objects. The unique design of the book is very fun for children and turns reading into a fun game for the reader. The book begins by telling the reader to pick a number on the top half of the book, and to find the same number of fruit on the bottom half of the book. The fruit is illustrated using Carle’s trademark bold, bright colors and interesting paint strokes. By the end of the book, the reader has improved their one-to-one correspondence skills and developed confidence in their counting.Personal Reflection: I really like this book because it engages the reader. Toddlers and preschoolers love to do things on their own, and they can flip and match the numbers themselves. The bright colors along with the unique pages really make this book interactive for young children and teachers/childcare providers like to use this book for teaching numbers.

    The book My very First Book of Numbers by Eric Carle is a great counting book for small children. This book has made it fun to learn numbers for the kids by the way the book was designed. In the book the pages are split in half. For the top pages there is a number on each page numbered 1-10 and on the bottom there are objects so you can count to find out how many there are. This book was made for small children to memorize number by site and then to learn to count using the objects on the pages. I would recomend this book to any parent that was trying to teach there child to count becaue it a cute and fun way to learn numbers.

    This book would make a great center activity in a lower elementary classroom. The book does a great job of representing numbers in multiple ways (with the word, with the number, with fruit, and with squares). The other thing I love about this book is that the childre have to match the top half of the book which is a block and numerical representation with the bottom half of the book. So they get to turn the top and bottom pages seperately. What a great way to practice matching! I would extend the activity by having them complete some task (fill in the number and draw a picture of how many they found of each object with rods and units).

    This was a gift from a librarian friend to my daughter. The first time we read it she wasn't into it at all (so naturally, despite her only being weeks old I decided it was because she already hates books and reading. ha ha) But today I picked it up again and she sat through the whole thing... we flipped through the pages searching for each of the correct numbers of fruit and then we did it a second time in French. Her little eyes were riveted to the book the whole time. Yay, my baby loves books.

    Read: board book (owned)A good book to help with learning numbers. It's designed so that you match the fruit on the bottom page to a number on the top page. It displays numbers in a variety of ways... the word, the number, fruit, and squares.

    The most attractive function of this book to my kids was the flip-page structure. This is not a "sit down and listen" story time book, it is really more of a hands on activity time book, and when used that way can be really quite fun.

    Honestly this book needs instructions I don't think it is good for teaching kids their numbers but rather as a testing tool to see IF they know their numbers. I was disappointed and I didn't enjoy the book, It was not what I expected.

    A Christmas gift from Abuela. Tommy loves these books, but Mom and Dad find the flip-page structure overly time-consuming.

    This is a nice interactive book of numbers. It counts 1-10 using illustrations of fruit in an interactive matching format.

    A good counting activity book. I like that he uses fruit throughout for a consistent object comparison, and a great way to introduce different types of fruit.

    I'm going to love this one. My daughter has a bit more development to do before she does (she's 11 months now and just beginning to enjoy matching games).

    Beautiful and cleverly, I found this book a bit hard to navigate, because the unmatched bottom halves of the pages, need to be turned back and forth in order to match the top prompting pages.

    Experimental design on dividing the book into a separate upper and lower half was amazingly ingenuitive!
