K-Gr 2—The first stanza of the song "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold" is, literally, the theme of Otoshi's third book about numbers. Two and One are best friends until Three comes along and disrupts the status quo. Two feels terrible about being left out, but Three convinces One that "odds" are better than the rest," and some verbal teasing ensues. Other odd and even numbers join in the escalating argument until Zero steps in and convinces Two to put a halt to the escalating division. One, Two, and Three apologize for the way they've been acting, and all the numbers, from Zero to Nine, decide it's a good thing to be open to all potential friends. Some lines rhyme, but others don't, which can create a problem in the reading cadence the first time around. This tale, featuring colorful numbers placed on large white pages, presents some clever wordplay and has a moral that will be best understood by children if the book is shared with an adult.—Maryann H. Owen, Children's Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WI

‘Let it go,’ said Zero
‘Just ignore them,’ added Four.
But Two couldn't let go.
At every turn, what did she see?
One playing with — Three!"

That being said, Two is not my favorite. One and Zero seemed effortless. This new metaphor seems a bit too over-thought. It feels as if she has felt pressured to recreate the magic of the previous two publications. I would love to see her try a new angle, something different than the number metaphors. She is a gifted voice in children's literature and I hope she does not pigeonhole herself due to past successes.
Bad: Simplistic art can have you scratching your head why children's books cost so much.
Overall: I paid $13.15. Best book among One, Zero, and Two imho. I would buy this in a heart beat again
