Cute, but not quite as good as the original. The rhyme scheme seems a little more forced, and the plot doesn't quite flow as well (for instance- why in the world does the zero joining up with 10 to become 100 suddenly make all the threatening bees mysteriously go away?)

Sometimes it is best to stop with the original and not try to duplicate it in a different manner. Though it was a fun read, I kept comparing it to Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom and well this is no Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom. It is a fun way to look at numbers but only ok for me.

This book followed the very popular Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. that was a story about the alphabet going up to the top of a coconut tree. Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3, is obviously similar, but with numbers. This is a fun book to read with fun rhymes and a great rhythm. It puts a fun, personal, and creative spin on young students learning their numbers, but I still kept comparing it to the original. This book, instead of a coconut tree, the numbers climb up an apple tree and it’s just n ...more
Not as good as Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom, but we still enjoy this one.

Cameron and I think Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is better, but she still laughed quite a bit.

I enjoyed reading this book to the children especially at circle-time, we review the colors, numbers and discuss any new word or words. The repetition is also good because it helps to re-enforce the concepts. The children love to read this book.
My little man assigns the number of stars on these. We like the counting to 100 and rather enjoyed the rhythmic feel that the words have. Can be chanted/sung for additional fun!

Pointless sequel that lacks the charm of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

This was not as good as the original, but had some good rhyming going on.
