    1. Oh! A new book by Appelt! With crows!! :grab: Start reading, start grinning. start reading 'aloud under breath' and grin bigger. Oh my. So fun. Plot, rhythm, rhyme, intriguing art style, and the count goes up to 12 (not just 10). Yep, it's another winner from Appelt!.Reread. Wait, what? Picked up again, not remembering it, didn't read my previous review. This time I'm not particularly liking it. Thinking it might be a rollicking read-aloud but also thinking that the crows would be more likely to [...]


    2. Just when you think all the books that reinforce kids counting skills have been written in every conceivable way possible, along comes Kathi Appelt and proves you wrong. Counting Crows does presume that young readers have learned to count at least up to 12 and are ready to have some fun with numbers 1-12. Here we find twelve crows, all wearing bright red and white striped sweaters and, because there's one fashion rebel in every crowd, one crow accentuates his with a red polka-dot scarf. The twel [...]


    3. Me while reading this book: Ants aren't spicy. Wait. How do I know? I've never eaten an ant. I bet fire ants are spicy. Are ants spicy? Yeppers! Ha! I like that word, yeppers!



    4. This is not a counting book. A counting book should not confuse the reader. Yes, you can count the crows, the stripes on the sweaters and even the polka dots. However, for those like me who think mathematically, this book gives me a seizure. I find myself counting the lines on the tree. Why do some crows have four tail feathers and others have three? Where are the actual numerals - if this really is a counting book!!! Although I like the red, white and black lines, please just read this for plea [...]


    5. Oh how I enjoy reading this book aloud. You can't read this book, you almost have to sing it, as the words (lyrics) have a rhythm all their own. Twelve crows, whimsically drawn by Rob Dunlavey in red and white striped sweaters, count and caw their way through the book until a cat shows up.


    6. The crows in this book are amusing.Good counting book for preschoolers and young elementary students who are working on counting by threes.Kids voted to give 4 stars.


    7. This playful picture book comes from the author of The Underneath and other novels for older children. This counting book does not move from one to twelve, but instead starts at three and allows a merry amount of counting along the way. Throughout the action is led by the crows who climb around on trees, sit on lines and find all sorts of treats to eat, including spicy ants. The story moves forward with counting until there are twelve crows who then discover one cat!Appelt proves that she can be [...]


    8. Explores the concept of a dozen by cumulatively counting to it by threes, so it slyly hits counting, counting by threes, multiplication, and the concept of a dozen. Appelt's language is lilting fun to read aloud, and I love the combination of Dunlavey's pencil work with the birds' red striped shirts and polka-dot scarves. The crows are goofy-looking, in the best kind of way, and I love how he contrasts that with these beautifully rendered realistic images, like the telephone poles and the cat. R [...]


    9. The counting and rhyming text make for a fun rhythmic read that easily lends itself to singing. It also breaks down sounds in words making it easier to sound out words for children. The lovely black and white with touches of red illustrations are expressive and funny. These are crows I want to hang out with and so will kids!


    10. What is black and white and red (read) all over and over and over?I love the contrast of the red on the pages to make the crows and then the cat pop.The rhyme moves swiftly.I see this as a Seuss award contender.






    11. Applet, K. (2015). Counting Crows. New York: Atheneum Books For Young Readers.Category: Math informationalA dozen crows explore the world around them in this mathematical reading book. They count items that they find on their journey like potato chips, snails and crickets. Applet does an excellent job of implementing mathematics with reading with simple illustrations and funny facial expressions from the crows on every page. I would recommend this book to a lower elementary student, especially i [...]


    12. Counting Crows, by Kathi Appelt is an incredibly entertaining counting book. Appelt uses a variety of rhymes and crows to draw children in and encourages the reader to count along with the crows. I loved how fun the illustrations are and how we follow the crows in whatever they do, like hanging from trees, or singing at the bottom of the page, or counting ants and nuts. This is a great book to reinforce children to count along. With each page and each crow being so different, there is no way for [...]


    13. "Counting Crows" by Kathi Appelt was easily one of the best counting picture books I have ever read. The simplistic imagery of the crows and their food/surroundings was incredibly enjoyable and memorable. Children can learn how to count while reinforcing their skills when counting other things within the crow's surroundings. I loved how this book also used the color red against all black and white pictures to draw the reader's attention to the crows being counted. I will definitely use this book [...]


    14. Love the illustrations of this title and this isn't a straight forward book to assist with counting as the opening pages count by 1, 2, 3. None the less children will learn some counting from this title.



    15. This book is a counting book appropriate for young readers. This book also has a rhyming theme to it. I would recommend this for early readers.





    16. With bright splashes of red throughout this otherwise black and white picture book, preschoolers will be captivated by the twelve counting crows all in stripped sweaters. This funny rhyming story counts the crow friends as they enjoy their day snacking in the park.Genre: picture book


    17. Plot: There are three crows to start sitting in a tree, they have three roly-poly bugs and three mangos. Soon there are six crows, nine crows, ten crows, eleven crows, and finally twelve crows in the end. Until, one cat comes along and scares all twelve crows away. How many crows and their snacks can you count before the cat comes?Literary Merit: The book has an obvious theme that it has children counting the crows. The setting is wonderful and is very easy for children to understand. The theme [...]


    18. This book is done all in blacks and greys with only the crows scarves or shirts giving a pop of red in a polka dot or stripe pattern. The book starts off counting by threes and then after nine goes to ten, eleven, and twelve. Each of the counting lines is done with a rhyme at the end and is related to what the birds are eating or think is tasty. After twelve is reached the book takes a turn when a cat counts twelve crow’s tails. Then the counting starts over at one two three and goes back up t [...]


    19. This just didn't appeal to me. I prefer lots of colors, especially bright ones, and this features just black, white, and red. The numbers are always written out; I would have preferred at least some in numerical format. Finally, the crows and crow-things didn't seem that much fun to count.


    20. Hardly a day goes by without seeing a group of small birds chasing, diving and madly chirping at a crow. While they may be a pest in the avian world with less than desirable eating habits, they are known for their intelligent adaptability. After my parents retired (or probably before but I did not notice) they were daily entertained by a group of crows who congregated in their backyard. They placed a large basin of water on a backless bench so their feathered friends could drink and jump in to c [...]


    21. This concept picture book is a must to a child's library. The book teaches children to count in a fun, rhyming and repetitive way. The illustrations go directly with the words so children can easily grasp the story line and count the crows while reading. It is a book that every child will want to include in their library.
