Amazon.com Review

What could be more fun than playing with your food? If you're a toddler, not much. So this simple counting book based on the well-loved breakfast cereal has a lot going for it before even being opened, and once it is cracked open, it doesn't disappoint. Big, colorful numerals stand out boldly on a white background, framed by more bright colors. Familiar little toasty O's and luscious-looking pieces of fruit match the number specified on each page: three Cheerios, three strawberries, and a little blurb--"Count O's here/ Say one, two, three!"--all support learning the number 3. One through 10 all share this format; the simplified 11 to 19 appear on a veritable fruit salad of a page, and the climactic 20 claims its own page opposite: "Eat twenty O's when the counting is done!"

Make breakfast time count with this tasty little board book! For more flavorful (if less healthy) counting lessons, see some of Barbara Barbieri McGrath's other books: Hershey's Kisses: Counting Board Book and The M&M's Brand Chocolate Candies Counting Board Book. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-A straightforward teaching tool for learning counting skills. The Cheerios are arranged in organized patterns from 1 to 10, and then from 10 to 100 by increments of 10. Each page has a corresponding number of fruit pieces (banana slices, strawberries, blueberries, etc.) arranged around the borders. Unfortunately, the numbers from 11 to 19 are listed on one page without any pictorial representation. The double-page spreads have an attractive, uncluttered look with white space used effectively. The numbers and illustrations are large enough to be seen by a group. The text is simple with an occasional rhyme, "You can count cereal./What fun it will be!/ See one./Here are two./Now there are three." More clever and unique books about this concept exist, but cereal is an easy-to-access material, and this title could be a useful starting place for children doing their own counting.

Format: Paperback
We have the paperback version of this book. I never imagined that it was an actual "book"; I thought it was just a gimic book that the company sold through its cereal. Having said that, it's not a bad book.
First, the book counts from one to ten, with one number per page. Each page has the number, a picture of that number of Cheerios, a rhyming verse containing the number, and a picture of a different kind of fruit, also demonstrating the number. The rhymes are OK, but not quite natural. As we read each page, I like to count the number of Cheerios. In doing so it's hard to keep the rhyme going. Also, if we stop to notice (or count) the fruit, the rhyme tends to get lost.
Next, the book counts from eleven to twenty on two facing pages. There's lots of fruit to see here, too. The next two pages count to 100 by tens, with the second page having (what I assume to be) one hundred Cheerios on it. Zero is the number on the last page: it "is the number you get when you're done."
This last quote brings me to a likely picky point. The book uses contractions. For this reason, it probably won't serve double duty as an easy reader.

When I purchased this book for my granddaughter, I thought it was identical to one I had seen at the hospital, where there are actually little slots to put individual Cheerios when the child is counting (then of course they can eat them, 1, 2, 3). The book that arrived had none of those cute little slots to hold the cereal, just the flat page. Of course my granddaughter did not know my intentions, she loved the book anyway.

What a great little book to start children learning numbers and using Cheerios makes it all the more fun. I worked in a privately owned book store for years and Cheerios Counting Book was always a big hit with children and parents alike. I keep a copy at my home for my neices and nephews to enjoy and it has managed to stay in good shape with all the handling. Thanks.

I had thought this book would have the little inserts for the cereal. Unfortunately its just pictures of cheerios, Confusing portrayal of using one cheerio to represent zero and then again to represent the number one. False concept of zero.

This is very cute. I think it is a great way to introduce children to counting by ones and counting by tens through manipulatives. And this comes from someone who doesn't like to buy into free advertising (in other words to have cheerio shoved down my child's eyes when I buy the book). But this is a great book.
Two thoughts- we have another cheerio book that has the place to put the cheerios as a little hole and my son likes that better. And, although the cover of this book lays flat, the pages do not. I had to put a little crease in the pages back by the spine so they would lay flat. This way my son's cheerios (or fakios) won't slip off the page.
Cute book though.
Enjoy.

I bought this book because my daughter (18 months)loves Cheerios. This is a great book for number recognition and practicing counting. The numbers 1 through ten are on each page with pieces/slices of fruit and cheerios to count. For example for number 3, a large number three is at the center of the page with 3 pieces of cheerios at the bottom with 3 strawberries at the top. The numbers 11 through 20 are respresented in one page with only the numbers showing.

If you are looking for a book to teach numbers 1 through 20, this is a great book!

As all the Cheerios Books are, this is a rare Counting 1 2 3 Book, difficult to find and so enjoyed by our little ones. It is colorful, pages are not cluttered and the reading and counting skills learned are fun! It's a must have for parents, teachers and especially little curious minds!

This book was a great find, I have a young infant child who is just starting to read and she considers this one of her favorite books. She loves the colors in this book and the many shapes and ways that help her learn to count. She enjoys counting so much, she will even count her food and its such a joy to see her eyes light up when learning to count along.
