One and All (Hardcover)
This picture book uses text and image to represent the increasing size of things: house, neighborhood, city. Some are straight forward, but some are jokes like: mosquito, swarm and yikes! The concept of the book is simple, but the illustrations are worth spending time with and lifting the flap creates more interest and excitement. Even the end papers have flaps to lift!
-- Anna— From Anna S. Staff Picks
One becomes many in this beautiful book about the relationship between the whole and its parts. Bold illustrations, hand-lettered text, and gatefolds serve to order and illustrate collections of people, things, animals, and plants, offering young readers a better sense of their own place in the world.
