Zero

Zero Review

Zero is a big round number. When she looks at herself, she just sees a hole right in her center. Every day she watches the other numbers line up to count: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 . . . !" "Those numbers have value. That's why they count," she thinks. But how could a number worth nothing become something? Zero feels empty inside. She watches One having fun with the other numbers. One has bold strokes and squared corners. Zero is big and round with no corners at all. "If I were like One, then I can count too," she thinks. So she pushes and pulls, stretches and straightens, forces and flattens herself, but in the end she realizes that she can only be Zero. As budding young readers learn about numbers and counting, they are also introduced to accepting different body types, developing social skills and character, and learning what it means to find value in yourself and in others.

    Zero is feeling very unimportant as he sees the whole in his middle and doesn't think he's worth anything. He compares himself to all the other numerals and still thinks he's valueless. It's only when...

    Zero, by Kathryn Otoshi, is the follow up to One. The moral of this story is peer perception and self-value as the number zero has to find where it fits in with the other numbers. Zero feels empty ins...

    It's easy to feel as if you don't matter - as if you don't count at all. Zero is having a bit of an identity crisis and struggles to find her place in the world. I'm starting to think this books are w...
