This is one of my favorite books. This book is about a little boy who has a new pair of pants, and goes on a fishing trip with his uncle. Along the way, he finds treasures and decides to put them in his pocket; but his pants were made without pockets. Therefore, he had to put his little trinkets in his uncle's pockets. This is a great book for first grade. As a teacher, I can use this book by asking the students to put a unifix cube in each of their pockets, and have them count the number of their pockets. This could be done in a small group. Then, the students in that small group can add their unifix cubes together by making trains of 10. It is a great lesson to get the students differentiating between tens and ones; therefore, it helps with place value.
