An absolute favourite of ours, along with 'Zero' and 'Two', Otoshi brilliantly combines quality of numbers, basic colour principals, values and the basics of understanding a bully all in one very simple yet captivating book. This is a book we've read many times at different stages of development and continue to applaud this book for the beauty and meaning it brings to our lives. So simple, yet so profound. Otoshi is a true artist in every sense.

Perfect book. I did make sure to highlight the bullying aspect so it wasn't just read without discussion otherwise for young kids it might make bullying appear ok on the surface.
Story is clever though, and you hardly know you are learning numbers and colours.
Our 3 and half year old wanted it read over and over.

This simple, yet clever and highly interactive book teaches young kids numbers and colors, but also that, in the end no matter what bullies say, we all count! This book is a big hit with my preschool storytimers.

A picture book that is winning a lot of awards - for good reason. Excellent book to share for all ages.

This picture book works for many age groups, ideally 5-10. The colorful shapes and lines work well with younger readers, while older readers can grasp the underlying concepts of acceptance. A great addition to any anti-bullying curriculum, and also works well as an at-home storytime book. Great for kids having trouble fitting in.

Really thoughtful. Melds numbers and colors and emotions into a clever story accessible for all ages.

Incredibly sweet. It's relatively subtle in it's message, considering the targeted age group. Message books tend to be preachy and obnoxious. This is neither. It's also beautiful in its art, adding to its strength and an excellent Pre-K book.

I've read this before...or was there when it was read out loud to children. I think this book featured strongly in the "Everybody Counts" thing they did at the elementary school I worked at. It's an effective enough anti-bullying book, but I wasn't blown away.

This is one of the very best picture books about bullying, and it is appropriate for preschoolers to seniors! The story is incredibly simple, meaningful, and unforgettable.

My 3 year understood the message of the book! Plus he loved to point out the colors and numbers and how Red got bigger and smaller. This is one of the best books I have read! I will be buying this for my collection!
