4.0 out of 5 stars Awkward rhymes but still fun 9 Oct 2001
By "a_mom" - Published on Amazon.com
A young rabbit and his mother go to the store to pick-up a few things: carrots, peanuts and worms (!). As the mother rabbit picks up different quantities, the young rabbit whines and complains (in a cute way) about the amounts. The mother rabbit compares the amounts to other shoppers in the store using the terms more, fewer and same. Graphics summarize the terms for each item.
The rhymes strike me as clumsy, but the book is fun to read with various voices for the mother and young rabbit. The young rabbit's facial expressions and gestures lend nicely to telling the story.
One part that might be of special interest is the young rabbits enthusiasm for carrots. He *likes* to eat them and begs his mother to buy more. For children who don't like carrots, this might just encourage them to "munch, munch and crunch" along with their rabbit friend.
Both my boys enjoy the book, but my 18 month old seems particularly enamored with it. It's a bit too basic for my three year old, but he still has fun with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 22 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
My 26 month old daughter loves this book. We only bought it a few days ago and have already read it at least a dozen times. I like the rhyming too. There are some books that I don't enjoy reading over and over again, but this one is fun to read. It flows nicely and the illustrations are adorable. I especially get a kick out of the little rabbit's eyes as he pleads with his mom to buy fewer peanuts :-) We're looking into getting more of the Mathstart books because we like this one so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why would Rabbit buy worms? 20 Dec 2007
By Tracy Foote - Published on Amazon.com
This book introduces the counting concepts of the same, fewer, and more.

As I read, I found myself wondering why the author would choose peanuts and worms (in addition to carrots) as items for Rabbit to shop for. I expected cabbage or green beans to be more appropriate and easy for children to relate to. I have not purchased many peanuts or worms when shopping with my kids. Of course my misunderstanding was solved by the end of the book when the guests arrived for lunch! What a fun surprise~

The book is very age appropriate as young children are amazed by both the products in a store and what others are choosing to buy. Even adults will see an item in a strangers cart and think, "Maybe I should buy that too!"

I particularly liked the way the graphics were drawn to explain the difference between the same, fewer, and more. I can see parents easily taking this a step further when children begin to count by having their children count the items in each boxed picture. The adorable drawings and a fun surprise make this a unique counting book.

my 3yo likes this, and the concept is easy to understand. Very rote which is nice as my 3yo likes to "read" it to us.

This story is one of the best of the math themed books. The little bunny is cute. Kids can relate to him.
