Chicka Chicka

Boom Chicka Rock by John Archambault; Illustrated by Suzanne Tanner Chitwood
Another book in a series, Boom Chicka Rock, continues along the lines of its sister book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. A great book to use when introducing numbers to children, this book uses illustrations related to "Hickory Dickory Dock" to tell the story. The repetition of text will help the reader when they read for understanding. The illustrations also allow for the students to make a connection between the picutres and the text they are trying to read. They should be able to attain what the text is implying by looking the illustrations.
I would use these books in my classroom in conjunction with the introduction of number sets. Each book get progressively further in the number sets and will make the concept of math a little easier to understand.
Intended audience: Kindergarten
