The concept is to teach that one can be more than one. Also, to show the different ways that one can be classified. ( )

This is a cute math counting book. I liked it because it taught children about how one pair of shoes has 2 parts, one baseball team has 9 players etc. I think this is important for children to learn at a young age. It can be confusing to think that one whole has many parts, but this is the beginning of helping students understand fractions and parts of whole that they will need to understand later in their education.

I love the concept of this book. Taking the theme of one and building on it is an interesting idea for a children's book. I thought it was inclusive to all children that the author had a section on family and how one family could be two people or six and it asks how many people are in your family. Over all I would recommend this book for young children to introduce practical math at an early age. ( )

This is a fun and easy counting book, it starts off with one and then goes to one pair, one family, one dozen, one school, one flock, and many other things that children see on a daily basis. It is easy to read and follow. This is a book to read to younger children to make math exciting and relatable to their everyday lives. ( )

If I am reviewing this book from a math perspective, I would say it was decent. The book shows how the number one can also mean one -one dozen, and so forth. The book was relatable, but not very intriguing for a young reader.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688141021, Hardcover)

Everyone knows that one is one. But can ONE be more than one? Absolutely! ONE PAIR is always two; ONE WEEK is seven days; and ONE DOZEN is always twelve. And that's just the beginning of this brilliant and original counting book.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:58 -0400)

Explains how the number one can refer to a single item, the two shoes in a pair, the seven days in a week, the twelve eggs in a dozen, all the trees in a forest, and much more.
