What happens when 1+1 equals . . . something other than 2?
Apart, blue is blue and yellow is yellow . . . but together they make green. Bees and flowers together make honey. Soap and water become foam!
With playful art and a simple, lyrical structure, this picture book is a delightful read-aloud and the perfect way to talk about all the wonderful ways that, so often, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Review By LAWonder10:
This is a great teaching tool for the very young child. It explains how things work together to create greater things!
The book is bursting with colorful illustrations created by Ariel Rutland. Although I am not a fan of cartoonish art, it is very popular with younger viewers.
The Book is made of quality hardback. material and is bound very well. It is slightly oversized, with large images so a group of children and view it at the same time. The title depicts the story very well.
I offer a Five- Star rating for this book.
This book was gifted to me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
