Rooster's Off to See the World by Eric Carle (Paperback)
One fine morning, a rooster sets off to see the world. Soon he's joined by two cats, then three frogs, then four turtles, then five fish. But one group by one, his new friends decide to head home, leaving the rooster alone again -- and ready to return to his own comfortable home as well. Bold, colorful collage illustrations, a beguiling story, and a simple introduction to number sets, addition, and subtraction combine to make Rooster's Off to See the World a delight for Eric Carle's many young fans.

"I found this book on a sale table, and of course snapped it up. (Eric Carle!) Saturday, my youngest granddaughter spent the day with me, and I got to read it to her. She’ll be three this summer, can already count past ten, so it was perfect. A rooster is lonely and wants to go for a walk. Along the way he meets a few animals and invites them to come along. It’s a counting book with beautiful full-of-life colorful collages (Eric Carle) and a repeat book. First there are two cats, then three frogs, then four turtles, and so on. My granddaughter caught on quickly and loved it. When we finished and said so long to every one, she wanted to start again. Very fun book!"
"This story can be a great one for students. Through this story, Carle can teach students counting numbers based off figures/pictures and overall becoming acquainted with numbers. This story is told in a sequence. To elaborate, as the rooster adds on characters, it is always reiterated to the readers how many of each animal is now present. This will be an excellent use in the classroom."
