Book Review: 1 Cookie, 2 Chairs, 3 Pears; Numbers Everywhere by Jane Brocket

1 Cookie, 2 Chairs, 3 Pears; Numbers Everywhere is the latest book in the Clever Concepts series by Jane Brocket. Like all of the books in this series, this book uses bright photographs of ever day objects to explain a concept. The pictures are detailed and colorful, using common objects in unique ways to help children with the concept of counting as well as different ways numbers can be used.

I am a big fan of Jane Brocket's series, and I recommend them to teachers and parents looking to expand on or explain a concept with their children. 1 Cookie, 2 Chairs, 3 Pears; Numbers Everywhere is a book that deals with numbers and counting. It shows how numbers can be found everywhere around us, and how we can count objects in a number of different ways. Simple and common ideas are used first, like counting fingers and toes, but by the end of the book readers have counted things that are the same, things that are different, stripes, sets of different items, and much more. While still simple, the book will encourage further counting and exploring in the world around them when the book is finished.

I recommend 1 Cookie, 2 Chairs, 3 Pears; Numbers Everywhere (and the entire series) for classroom, library, and private collections. Young readers will enjoy and learn while they explore the photographs and ideas presented. While Ruby, Violet, Lime will always be my favorite from the series, I also loved this addition to the collection.
