I wish I had known about ONES AND TWOS by Marthe Jocelyn and Nell Jocelyn earlier this school year. At first this book appears to be a counting book focused on showing examples for the quantity of one and two.  Each scenario for one and two shows a relationship between objects or words.

A few examples from the text -

one bird, two eggs
one bun, two bites
one girl, two legs

I really think my students would have fun thinking of their own objects or words to represent one and two in a relationship with each other.  The details created using collage are purely enjoyable to view and full of ideas as a collage mentor text.  I hope we will see more books from this mother/daughter, author/illustrator team.
