So much more than a counting book, this heartfelt and timeless story is about inclusivity and the joys of making new friends, from the co-creator of the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series A child’s solitary day at the playground turns into a boisterous park-wide adventure as one boy on the slide becomes two kids on the see-saw, then three jumping rope. Before long, ten new friends are playing like they’ve known one another forever. With its deceptively simple text and a rich visual narrative, How to Two is a playful counting and reverse-counting concept book as well as an exuberant celebration of inclusive play, friendship, and community.
