Children's LiteratureIt is really hard to believe that you could tell an interesting story in only thirty unique words, but the author of this title manages to do it. A young girl tells us that one dog, one stick and one branch are enough. It does seem to be a bit of a stretch when one push on a swing and one seed for the garden are sufficient, and certainly one book could never be enough. After moving indoors, she becomes a solitary cook who bakes a cake—a bit lopsided but that is okay, it probably tastes just fine. The book ends with a hug goodnight and the refrain "One is enough for me" which has appeared several times in the text. The art is appealing and emergent readers will have a great sense of accomplishment with this book. A "Rookie Reader" B Level. Included are a word list and brief blurbs about the author and the illustrator. 2005, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 5.
