Great Fun,Ecellent Teaching Tool! 15 Feb. 2001
By c. dennis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Children love this story which is a fun way to introduce the concepts of math (counting by fives), the arctic habitat, geography and natural phenomenon (the northern lights). As a teacher, I've used this book with three to six year olds. It is one of those rare books that lends itself beautifully to building several lessons around. It is easy to expand upon the books' concepts for the older children but the younger children love as well. It's simple but rhyming, poetic text and captivating art work make it a book that children ask to read again and agian.

Pima Student Review 11 Mar. 2005
By A. Mack - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book to my friend's 6 year old son. Out of the two books I had for him to hear, he wanted me to read this one first because the animals on the cover caught his eye. All the pictures were entertaining as they followed along with this math story and led to a very colorful end - all the animals came to see the Northern Lights. While reading, we counted the number of animals that came each time and when I asked him how many would show up on the next page, he knew it'd be five more. We both learned what an "ermine" is for the first time. I think this was a really cute book and will read it to my future students.

Learn to Count by Fives the Fun Way 22 Jun. 2006
By Celia Sorensen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book to introduce or reinforce counting by fives up to 30 and back again. I like using it with my children because of the above average vocabulary and because it is a great springboard for other studies (Northern Lights, Artic, Ermines, discussion on new words) all while teaching math concepts. The illustrations are cute too. A great all-in-one book.

Arctic Fives Arrive 14 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book Arctic Fives Arrive is an okay childrens book. It doesn't really make much sense in the beggining though. Childrens books don't have too though i guess. I didn't like the ending on it because i couldn't even understand what it was talking about. All in all though, the book to me would rank 3 out of 5 stars.
