Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

One Bear, One Dog by Paul Stickland also introduces animals one at a time, in a rhyming text ("One kitten,/ One goose,/ One monkey,/ One moose"); different colored print distinguishes each creature. At the end, a mirror lets little ones join the parade.
Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1. When frolicking animals and insects play follow the leader with bear, it's party time. The number "one" is repeated on each double-page spread, followed by the name of whichever character has joined the fun?"One bear," "one dog," "one mouse," until all 11 party-goers gather together waiting for the final participant, "ME!" The reader's image is reflected on the last page in a mylar mirror with all the gang looking on. The creatures are depicted in true-to-life colors and shapes against roomy white backgrounds. The text announces each new arrival in big, bold colorful letters. Very young children will like seeing themselves in the book. Preschoolers and first graders will be pulled into the animals' activities. With a little imagination, many ideas for activities can be gleaned from this story. A great concept book for having fun while adding plain ole "ones."?Susan Garland, Maynard Public Library, MA

I am live in the ancient town of Sherborne, Dorset, in England, with my Bookseller and Songwriter wife Helen..
I have six children, Rowan, Felix, Gus, Kit, Arthur and Tabitha.
For the past few years, despite a rigorous publishing schedule, I have spent as much time as I can out on the road, giving inspirational talks and fun drawing and pop-up workshops to children (and their parents!) in schools, libraries and literary festivals, from Edinburgh, Cheltenham and Glastonbury.

I have worked in the UK, Italy and America, in a great diversity of settings, the more challenging the better!
The visits start with the simplest of readings, through explanations of the process of creating and producing a children's book, to drawing workshops and hands on pop-up workshops. I am happy to work with all sizes of groups. I have found working with children with special needs to be particularly rewarding.
I am a passionate advocate for the world of children's books and as the years pass, I have become more and more drawn to working with and empowering young children to expand their creativity through this magical world.

This is a delightful book for infants! Our 12 month old twins love it - especially because of the "mirror" at the end. They can hardly wait to take turns having it read to them. I have purchased several copies as gifts for other young children which have also been well received. Highly recommended!

My daughter (2 years) loves this book. She can recite the book from cover to cover and delights in finding new words to describe the lively animals. She never gets enough of the surprise at the end and always wants to read the book again so that she can look at herself in the mirror. An excellent choice to start youngsters on their reading journey.

A simple little book, that seems like fun. What really sold me is that my daughter started 'reading' the book to us, after having it read to her a few times. Plus, she has so much fun reading this book. After deciding this was the perfect book, and that we should get a copy for ourselves as well as some extras for gifts, I was surprised to find it out of print. For a two or three year old, this strikes me as a classic book that should never go out of print!

I used to work as the children's coordinator at our local public library, and this book was a favorite for the age 1-3 year crowd. Now that I have my own children, this is the must read book before bed. My 14 month old "reads" this book to me every night. The simple text and cute pictures are perfect. She says the words., then does the animal sound. Ath the end, she kisses the baby goodnight and sometimes has a conversation! This is a must have on your shelf!

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful, simple book with gentle art and two word phrases on each double page spread. It is a good start for very beginning math: the concept of one and one to one correspondence.

The hook is the final page. Children will want to hear this over and over.
