About The Book

Count along with Rooster in this Ready-to-Read edition of a favorite story from Eric Carle.

One fine morning, a rooster sets off to see the world. Soon he’s joined by two cats, then three frogs, then four turtles, then five fish. But one group by one, his new friends decide to head home, leaving the rooster alone again—and ready to return to his own comfortable home as well.

With his colorful collage illustrations and text that introduces simple addition and subtraction, Eric Carle has created a beloved tale that’s been adapted into a Level 1 Ready-to-Read, making it ideal for sharing aloud with emerging readers.
