Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Budding Noam Chomskys may be disappointed that this book doesn't address the linguistic question of why singular nouns can refer to groups of things or people. Just about everyone else, however, is certain to enjoy how these two veterans of children's literature show that "one can be more than one." Schlein's (I Sailed with Columbus) text is simple but always playful, whether she's explaining that "a pair of shoes is always two," or using the various permutations of a family to show that "one can be different, different every time." Caldecott Honor artist Crews's (Freight Train) watercolor and gouache illustrations have an airy, often impressionistic feel that works well with Schlein's non-pedantic approach?although he displays a surer hand in depicting nature (a flock of birds, a school of fish) than in rendering people. Ages 4-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this concept book, readers learn that one can be more than one, as when "one pair of shoes is two shoes." Throughout the book, this idea is expanded upon to show that the number one can represent other numbers. The colorful watercolor and gouache artwork clearly illustrates each concept as it is introduced. People of various races and ages obviously enjoy one another's company and help make mathematically abstract ideas more concrete. More Than One is more than the usual counting book and is an enjoyable, accessible introduction to the world of numbers.

Format: Hardcover
Overview: Have you ever thought that the number one can mean more than one? This book explores that thought by showing that some things we say are one really have more items in them, like ONE baseball team has NINE players or ONE forest has LOTS of trees. It gives a number of different examples of how ONE can be MORE.

Mommy Bookworm's Thoughts: This book has very vibrant illustrations, which would appeal to various ages of children. There is a conflict of reading level and/or appropriate ages for the book. Personally, I think that 2- to 3-year-old children would enjoy the book because of the illustrations, but think that the reading level is more for ages 4+. I think the book is interesting in that it tries to teach how when we say ONE it may sometimes have more parts to it. However, I also feel it is a little confusing especially if you're trying to teach it to a little child.

Dahlia Bookworm's Thoughts: I did not like the book because it was not very interesting since it had facts that I already knew. I can easily read it. I would recommend it to younger kids though.

Daisy Bookworm's Thoughts: I could easily read it by myself and only needed help with two or three words. I like the pictures and colors. I thought it was a little boring though. I think it tries to teach kids that the number one can be more than one too.

From the publisher's press release:

"Everyone knows that one is one. But can ONE be more than one? Absolutely! ONE PAIR is always two; ONE WEEK is seven days; and ONE DOZEN is always twelve. And that's just the beginning of this brilliant and original counting book."

This is a perfect book for children to show that the number one can have a greater meaning than just one. It's a great math concept book!! My class of preschoolers loved it.
