As ever, when it came time to give a gift book to a new mother --this one came to the forefront of my mind. In gentle watercolors illustrating not only beautiful children, but plants, flowers, small pets-Tasha yet again leads the child, to hear and see the first set of numbers to learn. The ever-beautiful pictures stay in the mind's eye and help imprint the numbers of all the favorite items as we count up to ten.
Beautiful book Aug 18, 2005
Tasha Tudor is such a talented artist. This book is a joy to read with my son.
Beautiful Nov 22, 2004
This book was great. I read it to my cousin's children ages 6-8. The illustrations are beautiful. The children liked looking at the pictures which are very detailed and there is something new to find each time you look. I loved that not only does the book show the number (1,2,3) but it is also in text (one,two,three). We also referred to the pictures for a visual aid on what a group of that number would look like. Not only will children learn the numbers in the numeral and text for up to the number twenty, but they will also extend their vocabulary.
Five is Five Stars Aug 29, 2004
Tasha Tudor's 1 is One teaches children numbers with a lyrical, poem-like text. The illustrations look like they would be perfect for a spring calendar. I would recommend this book to anyone whos children are bored with the semi- mediocre picture books out today.
1 is one duckling swimming in a dish 2 is two sisters making a wish 3 is three swallows up in the sky 4 is four sheep nibbling rye 5 is five eggs in a pretty round nest 6 is six children all dressed in their best 7 is seven apples on a little apple tree 8 is eight daffodills you are picking for me
The book goes on the the number twenty. This is one for the picture book lover in all of us.
