I just purchased a few picture books at a school Scholastic Book Fair. Count The Monkeys by Mac Barnett is by far my favourite of the bunch! It is such a great interactive book and I read it with a Grade 3/4 class today and they loved it! It is also a great book for practicing counting but the story invites the reader to interact with the characters making it engaging. Not to mention some witty wording throughout the story. I recommend picking it up! It will stay in my supply teaching ‘bag of tricks’ for quite some time.
