Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Once again Hoban uses her remarkable eye to evoke the meaning of comparative words with her camera. Everyday objects and familiar animals are depicted-spoons, scissors, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and chickens. Although there is no text, the brilliant arrangement of the images suggests many questions with several possible answers. Beyond looking at what there is less and more of, questions of color, size, shape, texture, and distance also present themselves. The rich, full-color, full-page photographs are sharp and immediate. Each one appears within a bright, blue frame, adding to its appeal. A thought-provoking visual experience.

From Booklist

Ages 4^-7. Hoban adds another impressive book to her long string of picture books that encourage children to look closely at the world around them. This time she focuses on groups and comparing quantities within them. For instance, one photo shows racks of shoes. Children can readily see that there are more blue shoes than red ones and fewer orange ones than either red or blue, but they can also see other shoes in the background, which can lead them to additional ways of regrouping. Although each picture holds possibilities for creativity, there is almost always one clear answer. Of course, the quality of the photos is excellent, and since Hoban now lives in Paris, the pictures show objects and places with a distinctly different look, providing even more potential for discussion.

Format: Library Binding
While the photos are characteristically good--colorful and bright, the answers are not evident on every page. There is a good idea behind this book but the presentation will frustrate many young readers. A sixth grader at my library found it confusing. This is not one of Hoban's best.

I thought it was great but my students did not totally agree. I found that I had to use it in teaching situations rather than as an open activity that students were interested in pursuing during reading exploration. So, as a teaching aid, I found it useful but as a book that students would gravitate to as a free time reading activity, not quite as useful

It is ok! I bought this book for my Kindergarten class. It was coming up in my math curriculum so in a hurry I purchased it without really looking at the previews or pages. THERE ARE NO WORDS TO READ!!!

My school recently adopted a program which incorporates specific children's books into the lesson plans. Most of the books are provided but a few titles weren't. I started with Amazon's selections, ordered the books I was needing for upcoming lessons and everything I needed was received timely, in perfect condition and because I ordered while Amazon was offering a 4 for the price of 3, I received free books as well. Thank you Amazon!
