Apparently I have really high expectations when it comes to rating books on Goodreads. Most of the time, I’ll rate books as three (out of five) stars, and if I really like a book, I’ll rate it as four stars. Out of all the books Bubba and I have read so far, I’ve only rated one of them as five of five stars. It’s called “One” by Katheryn Otoshi.
Here’s how Amazon describes it:
“Blue is a quiet color. Red’s a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don’t like what they see, but what can they do? When no one speaks up, things get out of hand — until One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count. As budding young readers learn about numbers, counting, and primary and secondary colors, they also learn about accepting each other’s differences and how it sometimes just takes one voice to make everyone count.”
Obviously I’m not the only person who likes this book… When I checked Amazon to get the description above, it had 81 ratings… and EVERY SINGLE PERSON gave it 5 of 5 stars!
I love this book because it has all the right things you would want a child Bubba’s age to learn (like colors and numbers), and the lesson of the story is one that can be (and should be) repeated over and over in childhood.
This is the first book on our journey that I feel is good enough to buy a copy to keep at our house, and I think you would agree if you read it, too! Check it out and tell me what you think of it!
