Oliver Tolliver lives all alone and has one of everything in his little house -- "One plum and one apple, one pear and one peach. /Just one, only one, simply one, one of each". To him, it's perfect. But one day he realizes that his one-of-each house leaves no room for anyone else! Oliver soon discovers that two of each is even better, because sharing makes room for friends. This warmly humorous picture book carries a gentle message that speaks to every child's experience. Accompanied by Caldecott Honor winner Marjorie Priceman's bold, colorful illustrations, One of Each is sure to become a story time favorite.
