From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K-In his first book for children, a noted artist presents a counting book on its purest level. He shows the number and a corresponding quantity of objects on full-page spreads, ranging from 1 to 10. This work is deceptively simple, since each object depicted also has that same quantity it represents within itself. For example, one apple also has one stem, one leaf, and one bite missing. Four buttons each have four holes for an oversized needle and thread to lace through. However, some of the spreads are potentially confusing. The seven stripes on seven fish alternate in black and white, and children may count only the black or only the white ones, coming up three or four short. Therefore, the book would work best if shared with children by visually literate adults. Slaughter's collages present basic examples of various design techniques, such as the use of negative/positive space and the old adage, "less is more." The paper cuts are bold, simple, and striking. This title would work well for sharing with older students who are learning about basic artistic concepts. Despite its flaws, this is a unique addition to the counting-book genre and will be of interest to a wide audience.

“The paper cuts are bold, simple, and striking…. [A] unique addition to the counting-book genre and will be of interest to a wide audience.”
–School Library Journal
“Eye-poppingly colourful, 1 2 3 at first glance seems to be simplicity itself… But look a little closer and it is possible to see not just an artful counting primer but one that has quite a bit to say about shapes as well as numbers. It gets more complex and even more interesting as you travel up the number chain… Clever? Very.”
–The Globe and Mail
“Slaughter’s brightly colored paper cut illustrations are elegantly simple and yet subtly complex… Highly Recommended.”
“…filled with big, bright, and bold pictures… a great book to have in a pre-school or…kindergarten class.”
