One, Two, Three Count Along With Me - A Book Review

One Little Lot book cover






One Little Lot the 1-2-3’s of an urban garden by Diane C. Mullen is a counting concept book, (concept books contain educational facts in a fictional setting), with culturally diverse characters. Set in a trendy urban garden with vibrant pictures, children can strengthen correspondence counting, (recognize that a number represents quantity). The neighborhood is unified through a project that exemplifies the stages of problem solving by recognizing an opportunity for improvement, making a plan, and finally taking action to achieve a common goal. The story ends with a community dinner to celebrate the deliciousness of the harvest!

The author’s inspiration for the book was the pleasurable experience she had in a Minnesota community garden.


Keep counting while also increasing child’s vocabulary with these other concept counting picture books.
