Fuchshuber, A. (1997). Zwei und mehr. Mödling: St. Gabriel.
Ages: 3 to 6 years old
Paul and Peter are twins. Keeping them apart is difficult; they must wear different color socks so that others will not get confused. Being two can be a problem. In the animal world, however, a large number of offspring seems to be the norm, and the animals seem content with their lot. With each animal, the number of babies grows—the bear has two, the lion three, the cat six, and the frog has too many babies to count. In the end, when Paul and Peter try to play soccer, they realize that sometimes it is better to be too many than too few.
Zwei und mehr is a counting book that uses animals and their offspring not only to teach children about numbers but also teaches a message that everything in life is relative. Even though Paul and Peter think that two may be too many, the animals prove them to be wrong. The text helps children learn how to count with the help of images that represent how many babies each animal has birthed—for example, children see the number written out (zwei) followed by the image of two bears. The illustrations are stunning—sometimes dark and moody, sometimes bright and cheerful. Another educational element is the faithful depiction of each animal’s habitat; children see the animals where they are found—the lion in the savannah, the cat in someone’s bedroom, and the frog in a pond. This is a great counting book for German-speaking children or anyone who would like to learn the language with the help of strong visuals as scaffolding. ( )
