In this podcast, Cory Widdowson introduces listeners to the book The Baker’s Dozen: A Counting Book by Dan Andreasen.
The Baker's Dozen: A Counting Book, by Dan Andreason, is an intricately illustrated counting book appropriate for students in kindergarten or first grade. The reader can count on by ones with the baker as he makes tarts and other tasty morsels as he rushes to prepare his shop for the day. The pictures in this book will encourage children to count each of the pastries being named per page, and could also be used for teaching elapsed time. A major plus to this book is the inclusion of the word for the number and the numeral on each page, and a counting chart is located in the back of the book.
