About the Author:

Steve Swinburne is the author of many books, including Lots and Lots of Zebra Stripes; Guess Whose Shadow?; and Coyote: North America's Dog. He lives in Londonderry, Vermont.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Kids in colorful clothing pose for the series of bright color photographs that illustrate numerical terms such as single, pair, first, couple, many, few, odd, and even in a concept book for readers who have graduated from counting. Everything starts with one, begins a panel of pictures that depict a hot-air balloon, a rooster, a dog, and the moon, each cast dramatically against a bold background of blue sky, red barn, or green grass. Color and composition are key in explaining the meaning of couple (two fire engines), triple and third (a third grader holding a drippy triple scoop ice-cream cone), several (a laughing girls head piled high with hats), or a bakers dozen (a girl holding a box of twelve doughnuts, plus the one which shes about to devour). A unicycle, bicycle, and tricycle are used to illustrate the prefixes uni-, bi-, and tri-, while a series of pairs in the form of horses, boots, or outdoor telephones indicates things in doubles. The text is plain and simple, and halfway through, the book turns to questions, prompting readers to find the pair, the unicycle, the first in line, the even or odd number of friends, ending with, One and one make two. Sometimes thats just the right number. One complaint: with the exception of one photograph, every child in the book is white. That said, this attractive book by the author of Coyote (1999), etc., will inspire many young readers to look for numbers in their own immediate environments.
