When one of the colors is being bullied by another, "it takes One to stand up" and help. As the other colors also stand up to the bully, they become numbers too. Even the bully at last turns around. Lovely illustrations, kindness concepts with numbers and colors.
I love the book One by Kathryn Otoshi. Its universal messages of acceptance and anti-bullying are perfect for children of all ages. The main color, Blue, shares his feelings and relationships with other colors like friendly Yellow and mean Red. The use of colors and numbers as the characters makes it appropriate for pre-school units counting 1-7 and colors. Additionally, the illustrations are engaging for all levels of elementary school children. The discussion of feelings and emotions fits well with early elementary school. The bullying and acceptance theme makes it a great conversation starter with upper elementary & middle school students. One is a quick and enjoyable read-aloud. I would love to utilize this book in a future classroomm of mine.
This book was amazing and powerful, I know the children would love this book. This book is about a blue circle who wishes he has some of the exciting traits like his friends. Blue is timid and he gets bullied by the meanest of them all, which is the red circle. Eventually, blue felt sad with himself. Blue's friends were kind to him, but they wouldn't stand up to red. Blue wanted to give up, but the number one comes along and made things right for blue. Number one brings everyone in a circle together to stand up for blue. That's when red felt very small, and he rolled away. However, blue and one called out to red to join the fun. I believe the theme is acceptance because of blue friends accepting him and number one. At the end of the story, they accepted red. This book was fun and cute.
A number/color book reminding us that it just takes one to make everyone count.
