Ones and Twos

Marthe Jocelyn, illus. by Nell Jocelyn. Tundra, $15.95 (24p) ISBN 978-1-77049-220-2
Nell Jocelyn makes her debut in this collaboration with her mother, a counting book that doesn't go past two—and doesn't need to. Marthe Jocelyn contributes concise verse ("One bench, two bags,/ One pole, two flags"), while her daughter, working in collage, creates a friendly and expansive outdoor setting for a pair of girls to explore. In addition to the single and paired items mentioned in the couplets, numerous others appear, both in the main scenes and in the borders. Perhaps even more valuable than the counting aspect is the portrait of the girls' generous friendship. Ages 2–5. (May)
