    One thought on “Christopher Counting”

    1. 4* art5* storyThe problem was that Squirt didn't like the numbers 5 or 7. He refused to use them. I could NOT make him. Was it that he couldn't remember them? It didn't seem to be that. He just disliked them. There was nothing I could do about it.But then I had an idea. I did a library search for the word "counting". And there it was, "Christopher Counting". About a rabbit who learns to count at school, and enjoys it so much that he begins counting everything. The things in his house, his toys, [...]

    2. This wins the sweet and cute award without being saccharine. Christopher is a real character and one without a huge conflict to move the "plot" along. It's a comforting sort of book which even delivers the concept of counting from one to ten! A solid title.

    3. This is a good idea for a picture book--a little bunny who likes to practice counting by counting everything he comes in contact with. But the execution of the idea could have been a lot better. The story felt meandering, and there wasn't really a problem that the main character had to solve. The illustrations were cute--my favorite was the last spread showing the main character trying to count the stars.

    4. Cute and sweet. But Christopher Rabbit (and is there a hopeful echo of "Christopher Robin" in that name?) seems to be headed for a nice obsessive compulsive disorder. Maybe his teacher had better start him on the alphabet

    5. Christopher Counting by Valeri Gorbachev tells the story of a young rabbit who inexplicably attends school with a bizarre mix of rodents, predators, and a turtle. On the day the story begins, the class learns how to count. Christopher is very excited about this and spends the rest of the story counting. His friends and classmates are out playing games and invite Christopher to join them, but he declines. He'd rather count. Then he goes home, counts some more, then goes to bed. The End.My God, th [...]

    6. This would probably be on the top of my list for counting books. I thought it was cute because instead of it being a book with all numbers, it had a story plot behind it. I think kids would love it and when they start practicing numbers, it will get them in the mood to count everything they see as well. I would definitely recommend this for a class read or even a nighttime book. I will definitely be adding this book to my book collection for my classroom one day.

    7. Genre: Counting BookCopyright: 2008Christopher Rabbit loves counting. Ever since he learned to count at school, he counts everything. He counts everything in his backpack; he counts everything in the house; he counts steps as he walks downstairs; he counts times of the stone skipping on the water; he counts when he plays hide-and-seek with other friends. Finally when it is time to bed, Christopher is so exhausted because of counting all day. Before he is urged to bed by his mother, he suddenly r [...]

    8. when i picked up this book at the daycare i work at, i instantly wanted to read it because of the rabbit and butterflies on the front. "Christopher Counting" is a book about a bunny who goes to school and learns to count in his class. He goes home to his mother and wants to count EVERYTHING! books, things in his backpack, hide and go seek, and at the end of the book he wants to count the ALL of the stars, which is impossible. I would recommend this book for preschoolers because throughout the bo [...]

    9. This was on the New Books shelf, so it caught my eye. There were a little more words than I usually go for for my 2 1/2 y/o, but it was about counting, which he seems to be all about lately, so I thought I'd try it. He seemed to like it and asked to read again when it was over, so my intuition paid off. Little Christopher Rabbit counts EVERYTHING all day, but gives up on stars because there are just too many. It's a cute story, nicely illustrated and for those obsessed with numbers, a real hit.

    10. The wonder of new abilities just amazes small children, as it should, although sometimes we forget how exciting it is to learn something that's old hat to us. Christopher the rabbit is learning how to count and he's quite thrilled about it. He's a charming, cheery little bunny and his life with his forest friends and nice home is also a pleasure to share with little ones. There is a two page spread near the end where he tries to count the stars that is simply dear.

    11. Genre: counting bookCopyright: 2008A rabbit, Christopher learns counting at school. After the school is over, he begins to count everything he sees on the way home. He counts everything he can find at home. He counts everything when he goes to outside. He counts every one he finds when playing hide-and-seek. It is a great book to teach children how to count from 1-10. The illustrations are very cute which could make children engaged while reading.

    12. Christopher learns to count to ten and discovers that he loves counting. He counts everything from the petals on a flower to the stars in the sky to the number of baskets his friends make when they play basketball.

    13. This book has a very easy to follow story line for any beginning reader. It could be used for a math lesson to introduce young students to the idea of numbers and place value. I would recommend this book for grades K-3.

    14. Christopher learns how to count at school and wants to do nothing but practice all day and night. This is a good math story for kids who are still excited about learning and can understand Christophers excitement. Grades K+

    15. Gorbachev is one of my favorite authors/illustrators. His style of drawing captures the joy and innocence of a child (in of course anthropomorphized form).

    16. Christopher Rabbit really likes to count and wants to count everything around him. My son really liked this book and had to be just like Christopher and find things to count after reading it.

    17. Sweet story about Christopher the rabbit who loves to count everything and that's exactly what he does all day and almost all night!

    18. A fun and simple book for children learning to count - doesn't teach counting skills, but just celebrates them. Christopher counts EVERYTHING! Nice illustrations and cute animal characters.

    19. The exuberance of counting after Christopher learns at school how to count. The one! counting book to get this year!

    20. Christopher learns to count in school and ends up counting everything from flowers to the amount of kisses he gets before he falls asleep.

    21. A story about a little rabbit who loves to count. Neither here nor there - just an average kids book about counting. Good illustrations - I really like Valeri Gorbachev's style.
