Reviewed by Hilary Williamson 


One pear, three pears ... a pear tree. The concepts of One Some Many (now available in a board book edition) are clearly conveyed through bright, primal colors  with just a tinge of humor in a mostly eaten pear that conveys 'hardly any'.
Young mathematicians learn through floral examples that 'a few is more than two'. Then basic numbers and addition are illustrated up to ten (windows in a house). This unusual counting picture book comes full circle back to one again with a moon in a window ('one is only one').
One Some Many is straightforward, but different from the usual counting books in that it introduces simple quantity concepts (few, some, many). This makes it a very good choice for teaching early numbers.
