One Family

by George Shannon
Illustrated by Blanca G髆ez

Published by Frances Foster Books / Farrar Straus Giroux, 2015
24 pages
ISBN: 978𢠥74300036

Ages 36

An unusual, conceptually sophisticated counting book looks at the way the number 搊ne can be represented by a single object, a pair of items, or a group of things varying in number from three all the way up to 10. For every number from two to 10, 搊ne is also a group with that many members. 揙ne is three. One house of bears. One bowl of pears One is five. One bunch of bananas. One hand of cards. The narrative works hand-in-hand with the illustrations, with each page spread featuring a scene in which everything named can be found and counted (e.g., a family of three walking down a street in which one building they pass has a bowl with three pears in the window and a toy shop with a window display featuring the three bears in a doll house). While the art has a nostalgic feel, there is multicultural and intergenerational diversity within and across the families, all of whom are shown together on the final page spread: 揙ne is one and everyone. One earth. One world. One family.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
