More, Fewer, Less is a wordless picture book where the reader is supposed to decide if there are more, fewer or less. What I can easily see happening is someone picking this book up and just flipping through the pages. This book is not interactive at all. It doesn't state what any of the titular terms mean. There's no narrative because there are no words just a bunch of seemingly (albeit nice) unrelated pictures. This book wouldn't work well if used for instruction. ( )

This teaches children about the difference between more, fewer and less with real life objects.

This is a picture book by Tana Hoban that pictures many different objects. Many of the photos in this book have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This book provides no words, only pictures. I had mixed feelings about this book because I did not really see the point of it. I feel like there is no real story, the pictures don’t relate to one another, and there is nothing indicating what the book is about. But, since I found it in the math section of the library, I am assuming that it can contribute to the subject. Students can notice the different colors of the same object in one picture, or count the number of objects in another. Students can also distinguish halves and wholes, although I do not think they would be able to do it alone considering the book does not guide any of these ideas. In some of the pictures students can do what I previously said, but other pictures are pretty much just random. ( )

"More, Fewer, Less" I did not realize upon choosing this book that it was just pictures. However, I was taken back at how beneficial it actually is with just pictures. Children can look at this book and count. Using the pictures, they can think "Where are there more? Where are there fewer?" It think this is brilliant. Using many different pictures, the children can critically think about this concept. This book is a wonderful idea, and I think children will love using these visuals to learn. ( )

Very basic book. The lack of word may cause some confusion. The title suggests that it will be a comparison of more, fewer, and less, but it is hard to figure out which one is being depicted. So I can't imagine the confusion it would cause for the young reader. The pictures, however, are nice, so the young reader will have something to converse about. If the book is used by a Kindergarten teacher, questions would have to be posed to the students so they know what to discuss about the book. Without that, conversation can vary and the point of the book can easily be lost. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688156932, Hardcover)

Tana Hoban knows what fires the eyes and minds of her young admirers the world over. And with every click of her camera, she zooms in on a new discovery--like this treasure trove, a full-color lesson on quantities. Look at the stacks of brightly colored teacups, the racks of shiny new shoes, the bin full of mouth-watering candies. Where are there more? Or fewer? Or where is there less? The questions and answers depend on what (and how) you see. Like the distinctive photographs, it's all a matter of vision.
