“Laura Vaccaro Seeger proves herself a master of the concept book, once again combining text, art and design into a uniquely crafted ‘early reader'.” ―Philadelphia Parents Express
About the Author
Laura Vaccaro Seeger is a New York Times best-selling author and illustrator and the recipient of a 2008 Caldecott Honor, Theodor Seuss Geisel Honors for both 2009 and 2008, a 2007 New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award, and the 2007 Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Best Picture Book. Her books include First the Egg, The Hidden Alphabet, and Dog and Bear, among others.
Raised on Long Island, New York, Seeger began drawing at two years old and never stopped. For as long as she remembers, she wanted to write picture books. She received her B.F.A. degree at the School of Fine Art and Design at SUNY Purchase in Westchester, New York, and then moved to Manhattan, where she worked as an animator, artist, and editor in the network television business.
Seeger lives in Rockville Centre, Long Island, with her husband, Chris, their two sons, Drew and Dylan, and their dog, Copper. She loves painting, surfing, tennis, playing the piano, and spending time with her family. She takes long walks at the beach every day and paints in her studio every night.

While it functions as a basic counting book for my younger one, the clever windows in the book show how one word can be a part of another for my older one.
For example we see ONE on one page and when we turn the page, the window on the next page shows how ONE is a part of the word ALONE. So it is ONE BOY...ALL ALONE.
So even before she turned the pages, my older one was guessing what new word can be formed from this give word. Fun book.
