Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Greaves Radloff
Young children grasp the idea of "one" and "many" but counting that out may be problematic. Here readers are given a counting book showing just those two ideas, one and many. The illustrations from a neighborhood in New York could lead children into thinking about their own neighbors and cities. One bakery but many breads, one school but many children, and so on shows the diversity within communities while allowing the idea of "many" to come through. Diversity is seen as a strength, and the ultimate hope is that we are at peace with all. Grainy illustrations with text set-off in a rectangular box above are reminiscent of old alphabet books and samplers. Colors are muted adding to the old feel. Some of the words like hardware store and delicatessen may need explanation in this day of super markets, but all in all this is a charming counting book. Reviewer: Leslie Greaves Radloff
Kirkus Reviews
Diversity is at the forefront of this description of the many varieties present within a single bustling neighborhood. "There may be only one bakery, but there are many kinds of bread," the story begins, accompanied by an illustration showing the different types of bread contained within the store. Garrison depicts shops that sell toys, pizza, vegetables, shoes, hardware, musical instruments and flowers, as well as a delicatessen, a firehouse, an ice-cream truck and eventually a school ("There may be only one school, but there are many children"). The straightforward, repetitive text then widens to explain that there are many neighborhoods in a city, many cities in a country and many countries in a world, but "only one wish: PEACE." Unique and intricate intaglio collagraphs show the colorful neighborhood teeming with people, shops and tempting objects for sale, and depict the plethora of differences-and similarities-present. A nice choice for showing categories, variety and different stores, as well as a portion of what makes up a neighborhood. (Picture book. 4-6)
