About the Author

Steve Swinburne is the author of many books, including Lots and Lots of Zebra Stripes; Guess Whose Shadow?; and Coyote: North America's Dog. He lives in Londonderry, Vermont.


PreS-Gr 1-In this well-designed picture book, lively, color photographs of children riding a bicycle, jumping over a ball, lining up, eating a triple-scoop ice-cream cone, or playing in a group illustrate and introduce number-related words. The first page explains that "Everything starts with one." Terms such as "single," "double," "triple," "couple," "several," "few," "many," and "a dozen," and prefixes such as "uni-," "bi-," and "tri-" are introduced. The first half of the book clarifies the concepts, one per page, while the second half is written in the form of a guessing game with questions that enable children to use some of the words. For example, the author writes, "Some games have an odd number of friends." Later, he asks, "Is this an odd or even number of friends?" Children must look at the picture to decide. The answer follows on the next page with another photograph. The clear, engaging photographs are set against plain white backgrounds with large-print, easy-to-read captions. While not a first purchase, this title will expand mathematics collections.-Kristina Aaronson, Bethel Elementary School Library, VT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
