Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[A] celebration of homonyms…. attention to detail in each colourful collage is mesmerizing.”
– The Waterloo Region Record

Praise for Ones and Twos:
"This delightful concept book brings visual literacy to the forefront, supported by a minimal text.... The simple descriptive verses ... are spot-on to reinforce images of numeracy, sorting, paring, common-object recognition, and the daily lives of young children.... The charming collages are the stars of the show and will inspire curiosity"
- Starred Review, School Library Journal

"... Jocelyn's imaginative collages help create a book rich in playful details, with a storyline told through pictures that provide depth to the concepts explored in the text.... Sophisticated and yet endearingly simple, Ones and Twos can be enjoyed by both very young children and the adults who read it with them."
- Starred Review, Quill & Quire

School Library Journal
PreS—"Where do you look?" This refrain introduces a series of homonyms, while each page turn asks youngsters to anticipate a dual meaning for each word. "Where do you look for a tongue? In a shoe? Or in your mouth?" Large and easily identifiable images done in collages of fabric, found objects, and paper illuminate the colorfully patterned large font of each first question. "Where do you look for a match? In the laundry? Or on a soccer field?" Are glasses found on a shelf? On a face? Do you find a wave at the train station or at the beach? With backgrounds appropriate to each image, the pages provide scenes and simple objects from a child's world that echo in each concept. A playful language game and a vocabulary stretcher for young children.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX
