"2 is a little. 0 is nothing. 1 is not enough. Right? But think again. One sun is a lot. One tree is a lot. One dog is a lotô Sometimes two is too much, and sometimes zero is just right. One Is a Lot is a unique and thoughtful picture book that introduces readers to a different way of appreciating numbers, asking them to reconsider their notions of the smallest numbers - 0, 1 and 2. A lyrical, philosophical book that shows readers how the value of numbers depends on perspective."--
2 is a little. 0 is nothing. 1 is not enough.Well, sometimes ... 1 sun is a lot. 1 dog is a lot. 2 can even be too much. And when it comes to rain clouds, 0 is perfect. It's curious, but true. It all depends on what you're counting!Bestselling and critically acclaimed author Mượn Thị Văn offers an innovative and thought-provoking look at the question, How many is enough? Simple page by simple page, young readers are shown examples of how, when counting things, the smallest numbers --- 0, 1 and 2 --- can mean a little, a lot or just the right amount. With its playful spirit and lyrical text, this unique, philosophical picture book promotes critical thinking, observation and discussion, even among the youngest children, and introduces a new way to appreciate numbers. Full of energy and humor, Pierre Pratt's illustrations tell a story within the story that adds a separate narrative layer to the spare text.
