0 wants to go in the Apple Tree but lots of numbers come before her. After all the numbers except 0 are up the Apple Tree, bumble bees come and say that its their tree. The bees fly around them causing every number (Except 10 who is hiding) to fall down. 0 now knows where she should be in the Apple Tree and 0 joins with 10 to make the number 100 and all of the numbers come back out and cheer for 10 & 0.
The publisher, S&S, originally asked Bill Martin, Jr. to write a sequel to his book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. But when he and co-author Michael Sampson turned the manuscript in, it was rejected. That manuscript was published by Henry Holt as the title "Rock It, Sock It, Number Line." Five years later Martin and Sampson wrote a second counting book, and it became Chicka, Chicka, 1, 2, 3.
The book quickly became a best-seller, and is used by teachers throughout the United States to teach counting and place value to young children.
The book has won numerous awards from a variety of publications, libraries, and parenting groups, including Best Book of 2004 by Parenting Magazine.
Weston Woods produced an animated cartoon of the book, complete with music and song.
