About this title
Illustrating different kinds of families that help children to count to one hundred by ones and tens, an active picture book depicts colorful characters who share bonds of family, friendship, and community. Reprint AB.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Beginning with the statement that "one is a family finding a place to call home," the text goes on to count to 10, then by 10s to 100, describing various groups as "families": for example, 6 is a family passing bread around, 60 is a family sharing a neighborhood street. The intent seems to be to encourage young readers to feel comfortable and loving with their neighbors and friends, but to call fellow apple pickers a family is to diminish the definition. With all of the literature encouraging children to realize that families come in all shapes-single parents, same-sex parents, mixed races, etc.- this well-meaning book makes the concept a little too broad for the intended age group, who might not yet grasp the idea of a global village. Aside from that, this doesn't work well as a counting book, either. "10 cheering runners round the bases" shows 7 people in the bleachers, one runner, a catcher, and a fielder. All in all, this is one warm-hearted effort that flops.
