Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New arrivals vie for space in the nursery. Adapted from the Caldecott Honor book 1 Is One (1956) for a board book edition, Tasha Tudor's simple text and naturalistic watercolors alternate with b&w drawings to put the focus on counting.
School Library Journal

Toddler-PreS—This sweet, old-fashioned counting book introduces the numbers from one to 20 in a lilting, rhyming text and Tudor's signature naturalistic paintings. They feature birds' nests, flower chains, apple trees, and barefoot children of another era, all of which perfectly match the verses: "11 is eleven girls/dancing in a ring./12 is twelve baby birds/learning how to sing." The lovely detailed artwork alternates between black-and-white and full-color spreads.

This is a beautiful book that is best bought in the unabridged hardcover version, rather than the shortened board book format. The hardcover version counts from 1-20, whereas the board book version ends at 10.
