"One Potato: A Counting Book of Potato Prints" by Diana Pomeroy is an easy book that counts items grown from the garden starting with one potato going up to one hundred sunflower seeds. All of the illustrations were created from potato art which instructions of how to create your own potato art on the last page. I think students would enjoy having a book like this read to them, and then incorporating the idea of creating their own number books using potato art. ( )

I'm not sure why this book was given a bad rating. It laid out different vegetables and fruit matching the number. 1 potato, 2 grapefruit, 3 watermelon. IT consecutively goes all the way to 10. Then it skips to 20, 30,40, 50...100. I actually learned that my son can count all the way to 50 when reading this book. It also has a neat recipe in the back of the book. ( )

I love when books give you an activity at the end so that you can create your own imitations. I also like the thick paper used and the counting to beyond 10.
