One Some Many
By Marthe Jocelyn
Illustrated by Tom Slaughter
Where's the Math?
This is a book about providing terms for naming quantities of objects. It also is a book that can be read by emerging readers. Children will gain understanding of everyday descriptive terms used for quantity such as "few" "many" or "some" The bold pictures and text display the concepts in an engaging and playful way (i.e. a few is three, or four, or more). The book also includes addition problems such as "plus one is six

This is a concept book and could be helpful teaching the meaning of some, many, few, none at all. Very bold images in primary colors.

This book is very simple. It is most appropriate for k-1st. It uses simple pisture to show how much is one, some many, a couple, a few, ect. It may also be a good review towards the end of 1st grade before you introduce other "higher" math terms like largest, smallest, greater, more than, less than, ect.

This book would be beneficial for younger aged students to explain the differences between some, many, and few. Can also be used to determine greater or less than. Pictures in the book can be used as different representations of shapes.

Great for younger grades, maybe Pre-K through 1st. Vivid images show how much is one, some, many, a couple, and a few. Could be used when introducing terms like greater than, less than, larger, smaller, -est words, etc.

This book would be good for teaching the standard language for numbers, such as, a couple, a few, some, and many. This is also a good book for teaching one more than and one less than, leading up into addition.

bright and colorful and also helpful with the mysterious "a few" that some children have difficulty grasping.
