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. ( )

This is a concept book made entirely of photographs without text. The only words in the book are in the title "More, Fewer, Less." The photographs are well-done with interesting compositions. Some are what would be expected such as boxes of red spoons next to blue spoons. Many will require a more sophisticated interpretation such as that of a car junkyard in which most of the cars are a washed out beige color, but two still are yellow. Adult and child enjoying this book together can dissect the photos together to discover how to categorize the items to define more, fewer, or less. As a concept book it certainly is aimed at pre-emergent and emergent readers. It will certainly inspire a lot of conversation and build listening vocabulary without any text at all. Organization, format, style are the simplest possible. Just one full page photograph after another. The photographer has had her work in MOMA New York. ( )

I did not like this book. The photographs were lovely, but I did not feel that they would really help a child understand the concepts in the book. There were photos of shells, chickens, jelly beans, and many more, but it was hard for this adult to figure out which part was supposed to be more, fewer or less. Ti was poorly organized and without words to help guide, I felt a bit pointless. I would not use this book in a classroom.

Haiku summary

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.

Photographs illustrate groupings of objects in larger and smaller numbers.
