The book The Number Eight models how to relate the numeral 8 and the word eight by linking to a well-known traditional African Anansi tale, Anansi the Spider, and common objects with which students are familiar. The book shows many groups of eight--the octopus's legs, the spider's legs, and different kinds of food items for a meal. Students can count to eight and determine whether different groups have the same number of objects.
