Scholastic: Chicka Chicka 1-2-3 and More Stories About Counting
This energetic and colorful animated release was carefully adapted from the original award-winning book by Bill Marin, Jr. and Michael Sampson, with animation of Lois Ehlert’s vibrant illustrations. The story-on-video features fun-filled music and vocals by Crystal Taliefero, backup singer for Billy Joel. Two other stories about counting include “If You Made a Million” and “How Much is a Million?” (adapted from the acclaimed stories by David M. Schwartz and illustrated by Stephan Kellogg). DVD extras include a read-along feature, Auto-Play and a bonus story, “Millions of Cats,” by Wanda Gag.
The focus is on early math concepts important for children ages two to six.
Over the years the people from the Scholastic Company have finished fantastic educational products that encourage children’s knowledge. “Chicka Chicka” is a teaching tool that discusses forms of money, numbers and values. The children will be entertained while learning interesting facts regarding money, banks and amounts. An amazingly informative DVD.
