One Too Many: A Seek and Find Counting Book

Marino, Gianna. One Too Many: A Seek and Find Counting Book. Chronicle Books LLC. 2010. ISBN: 9780811869089

One Too Many is a beautifully illustrated book that encourages visual learning and counting techniques. We begin on page one with 1 flea and with every turn of the page another group of animals joins our flea in the barnyard. The illustrations of each animal are similar in coloring, forcing readers to hunt for each new animal as they join the gathering group of barnyard cronies. The ending also is surprising and funny, which is always great to see in education-based books.

There is little text on each page, usually just a number in the upper-right corner. The final spread does have a bit of text, however, as it provides the answer for the seek and find game and suggests more difficult seeking games to play throughout the book for fun re-reads.
