Description
"One Some Many" by Marthe Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter is an excellent early introduction to numbers and to the principles of modern art. It is the perfect companion to "1 2 3, " a counting book with a difference. Slaughter's bold, Matisse-inspired paper cuts illustrate basic artistic elements, including color, form, and line, while the playful and inventive text introduces the concepts of quantity that children find most puzzling (and that adults have the most difficulty explaining ). After all, how many is many? Some? A few?

Praise For One Some Many

“Indeed, this book…doesn’t underestimate its very young readers… The field of intelligent preschool books is not a crowded one. Both this and Slaughter’s previous book are as smart as they are interesting to look at…”
