Count 1,2,3 on the Subway by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender- ADVISABLE
Jacobs, Paul Dubois
& Jennifer Swender Count 1,2,3 on the
Subway. Illustrated by Dan Yaccarion. PICTURE BOOK.
Random House, 2014. $14.99. Content: G. This is a fun and simple book
that not only explores counting numbers from 1 to 10 and back down again, but
also the fun and exciting adventures that can be found in New York City. The story begins with the little girl and her
mother buying one metro card. The
experiences they have from that moment on increase in counting until the number
10. The middle of the book shows the
inside of the subway where “10 friends sway, boogie and bop to a tunnel beat…
Here’s our stop!” The story is written
simply in rhyme with few words. The
story ends again with the number one where the mother and girl end up at “one
station, central and grand.” This is a
fun and exciting counting book with illustrations that are unique and playful.
This would be a great book to help teach counting to ten. Pre-K.
