Clark the Shark Dares to Share

Clark the Shark Dares to Share

 

In Clark the Shark Dares to Share, Clark learns that sharing is caring–but sometimes the lesson is a little confusing. Clark shares his funky shark dance with the class, but Mrs. Inkydink tells him he has to wait his turn. Clark shares his reef-hockey skills, but his teammates would rather Clark share the puck. With help from his friends and with his trademark lively rhythms and rhymes, Clark learns how to share in this follow-up to Clark the Shark.

Wumbers

Wumbers is a story created with letters and numbers. Letters and numbers are used together to make words and sentences 4 kids 2 figure out!  It’s a great book for kids interested in word puzzles. The clues are letters and numbers.  The pictures help too. Here is what the story looks like:

Don’t you just love making 4ts?! (Don’t you just love making forts?!)

I Like 10ts, 2! (I like tents, 2!)

It’s fun.One of my favorite books growing up was CDB! (See the Bee) by William Steig. It does the same thing! In fact, Wumbers is dedicated to William Steig. The author of Wumbers liked CDB! too! L8er allig8or! Author: Amy Rosenthal

How Many Jelly Beans?

If you could have as many as you wanted, how many jelly beans would be enough? (I could eat a lot…except the black ones. I always gave those to my Mom.) Is a handful good? How about 10? How about 100? The kids in this book up the number of hoped for jelly beans until they get to a million. On each colorful page kids can watch the number grow in the pictures and actually count the jelly beans. Even a million! The million page fold out to make a giant poster of ONE MILLION COUNTABLE BEANS! For small children, it’s often hard to tell the difference between one minute and 5 minutes…let alone big numbers like 100 or 1,000 or 10,000. This book is a great way to introduce the big numbers. And it’s funny, which is always an A+ way to end a book. Author: Andrea Menotti

More books to help get a handle on numbers, the big ones as well as amount words like “pair” and “couple” and concepts like “more than” and “less than”!:
